Our goal as a society is to bring together accounting students and help them build connections inside and outside of Dalhousie. Guaranteeing this, is our seasoned administrative team, which is separated into two bodies: the executive, which handles the day to day operations of the club and is made up of the President, Vice-President, Vice President- Finance, and Vice President Communications. The second is the extended executive, which is made up of members who have completed at least one co-op semester in an accounting position. These members will be your best resource when you have questions about firm culture, service lines, or recruitment processes. As a general member you will have access to these students as well as constant firm updates about on campus activities.
Dalhousie DECA is the first Atlantic Chapter of DECAU and hopes to advance students forward in all areas of business leadership. With students involved from all years of business studies, in our first year as a society, we have brought together a range of students from different majors, and interests with high hopes for the future. DECA allows for students to develop their skills and compete in cases in many areas, such as: Business Management & Administration, Communications, Technology, Entrepreneurship, Finance & Accounting, Hospitality & Tourism and Marketing & Sales. DECAU gives students an opportunity to put their skills and experiences to work at conferences and through case competitions, which are judged by business or industry professionals. Dalhousie DECA is looking forward to providing a unique opportunity to improve case experience, expand a professional network by meeting other involved and engaged students from across the nation, as well as the chance to bring home provincial success as a representative of the Rowe School of Business.
DALIS aims to bridge the gap between what students learn in school, and what they need to learn to be successful in Capital Markets. We manage a $100 Million mock portfolio of stocks, bonds, currencies, and derivatives on Bloomberg Terminals. Our members get the chance to travel to New York, Toronto, and Vancouver to compete in international investment competitions and conferences. Many of our alumni have jobs with the top Canadian securities firms, and these connections allow us to get our members some of the most competitive co-op placements. DALIS is a great opportunity to meet other driven and successful students in upper years. No previous knowledge is required to join, but membership is encouraged for anyone looking for a co-op in sales and trading, wealth management or investment banking.
