Dear Prospective Member:
Greetings from the Iota Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi! Beta Alpha Psi is an international honorary organization whose main objectives are to promote academic excellence and to facilitate interaction with accounting, finance, and information system professionals. In addition to providing firm events and speakers, Beta Alpha Psi creates long-lasting friendships among members through social activities. The Iota Chapter also participates in many community service and joint chapter activities.
As a member of Beta Alpha Psi, you will have numerous opportunities to interact with top professionals from various firms and corporations that may play a crucial role in future job placement and personal development. Not only does interaction with these professionals occur in a formal environment, but in very informal social activities as well.
Your membership allows you to interact with professionals and take advantage of the resources available within the organization. Many Beta Alpha Psi members have already gone through the recruiting process and can provide you with advice based on their experiences. More importantly, many of the members have had the opportunity to experience a summer internship with major accounting firms and private corporations. This gives you the opportunity to speak with members who have had significant interaction with recruiters and other professionals.
You will definitely experience the benefits of being a part of Beta Alpha Psi.
