"The Sales Management Marketing Program was an amazing journey that I wish I would have started sooner. The teachers are phenomenal and will go above and beyond for their student’s success. Without them, I do not believe I would have the confidence and skill set I have today. They encouraged me to join DECA, which has helped me in numerous ways, from gaining confidence to allowing me to experience sales in a hands on setting. This program allowed me to complete my degree all while working full time. It is not overwhelming by any means and as long as you put in the work, you will gain all you need from this program."
