Kelley DECA excels in competition
Ross Hagen and Dibbasatya Ghosh were part of the Kelley DECA team competing in the national case competition.
The DECA club sponsored by the Kelley School of Business placed in the Top 10 in the case competition at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando recently.
The conference, hosted by Collegiate DECA, is the highlight of the year for Kelley’s DECA club, which is open to all students on the IU campus. More than 2,000 students from about 300 universities compete at the annual conference.
Attendees this year were KSB DECA President Artan Ferati of Anchorage; Melissa Kogler of Chesterton, Ind.; Dibbasatya Ghosh of Kolkata, India; and Ross Hagen of Ligonier, Ind.
Kogler, who will be a senior in the fall, placed in the Top 10 in the Travel & Tourism category. She is majoring in tourism management.
The other team participants will be juniors in the fall. Ferati and Hagen are majoring in accounting and finance. Ghosh is majoring in business economics and public policy.
A Kelley DECA team member has placed in the Top 10 in at least one category in the competition every year since the club was organized.
Travel support was provided by the Kelley School of Business Student Government. Adam Herman, visiting lecturer in business communication, is the faculty sponsor.
