Results of the 2018 DECA State Competition
2018 DECA State Competition Results
I am very excited to share the results of the 2018 DECA State Competition. These results are significant when you keep in mind that 12 colleges had teams at the competition, and to place, we must overcome schools such as the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Oakland University. It is no easy task.
Further, we compete in more difficult areas (prepared events). Our students must complete a proctored 100-question exam, submit a perfect 15-page paper (penalty points are assessed for each error) and present their case to subject matter experts.
We had nearly our entire team of 24 qualify as finalists at the event (a significant achievement in itself).
1st Place: Corporate Finance
1st Place: Entrepreneurship
1st Place: Emerging Technologies and Strategies
1st Place: Business to Business Marketing

2nd Place: Financial Statement Analysis
