NSU’s Collegiate DECA chapter sent 5 members to represent the University at the 2019 International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Orlando, Florida.
More than 1,400 college students from around the nation participated in the five-day event. The (ICDC) competitive events program gave participants the opportunity to put their experience, skills and knowledge to the test in 24 difference categories. The Competitive Events Program has been recognized for helping to prepare students for their professional careers. Their work and presentations are judged by business and industry professionals in those fields.
Placing Top Ten in competition finals were NSU students Vijay Patel, who competed in Sales Management event and Varun Raja who competed in the Entrepreneurship Operations event. Varun also earned two Awards of Excellence in his category by earning top scores in both the testing and case study portions of the event.
Other NSU students who qualified to compete at the national level were:
- Rea Ghodasra, Business-to-Business Marketing

While attending the conference, NSU students were able to network with representatives from corporate supporters like Walgreens, NAPA, and England Logistics as well as participate in professional development workshop sessions hosted by industry experts.
