Summer Homework Assignment: 2019-2020 School Year
For all Marketing, Algebraic Principles of Marketing, School Store and Principles of Business prospective students:
As you joyfully travel and enjoy your well earned summer vacation, I want you to notice how different companies use their “Logo” and “Branding” to communicate with you, “the consumer”, about their product or service. I also want you to take notice of company risk, liabilities, and advertising tactics used by your chosen company. Finally, I want you to explore the world of DECA and identify how it can help prepare you for a brighter future. Go to: www.DECA.org and explore the website to see what DECA has to offer you moving forward.
We will be discussing these topics during the 1st week of school in your respective class.
