Virtual Business Sign-up

DECA Virtual Business Online Event Registration

After you have registered your team, you must email Mr. Kimbler so he can activate your team.

Team registration for the DECA Virtual Business Challenge (VBC) will begin at 8 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, October 9. Please have your members register and participate in this totally interactive technological competition. Members may participate within one, some, or all seven VBC tracks.

All of this year’s events will be using online versions of our Virtual Business simulations. And, if your students already have online Virtual Business accounts, they will not have to register for new accounts. They will, however, still have to create new VBC teams.

There are two qualifying rounds for this event and both are completely web-based. Students can qualify for a chance to compete at ICDC without even leaving their classroom!

The dates for this year’s qualifying rounds are:

Challenge 1: October 23, 10:00 a.m. Eastern – November 2, 5:00 p.m. Eastern

Challenge 2: January 8, 10:00 a.m. Eastern – January 18, 5:00 p.m. Eastern

Important Info: At the conclusion of the second round of the VBC for each of the seven tracks, the teams that qualified to compete in the live event at DECA's International Career Development Conference will be listed on the VBC rankings pages.

Competition sessions at DECA's International Career Development Conference will be held live in the exhibit hall. Unlike the qualifying rounds, competition sessions held at ICDC will be timed events. The competition at ICDC will follow a double-elimination format with scholarships being awarded to the first, second and third place teams.
