Special Topics in Business Marketing and Marketing Management
The course is designed to experience New York City, the heart of the business world! We will be participating in the 2014 Collegiate DECA Leadership Academy in mid-November 2014. Students experience the industry and career field of their choice by meeting with industry leaders, going behind the scenes to learn how business gets done, and putting their knowledge to the test to find new solutions to challenges that today’s industries are facing! Students will network with other students from across the country and work in teams to address industry issues. It is an opportunity of a lifetime to live, learn and lead.
The 2014 DECA Academy tracks include:
- Sports and Entertainment
- International Business and Finance
- Fashion Merchandising and Marketing
Students select the career track most applicable to their career plans. Workshops will focus on meeting industry leaders, visiting applicable business sites, and learning about business strategies within the track. Participation in this class meets the requirements of an internship for the Marketing department. Students are responsible for their travel costs (approximately $1,300 in 2012), to be paid as a fee for the class.
