USI's Lambda Mu Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi was recently recognized as a "Superior Chapter" at the 2013 Annual Beta Alpha Psi Conference in Anaheim, California. In addition to the excellent recognition, superior chapters receive a financial award contributed by the KPMG Foundation. Student members in attendance to accept the award included chapter officers Leah Fugate, Mitchell Meurer, and Kelsey Welp. In addition, co-faculty advisor Brian McGuire and the Midwest Region Chapter Advocate Mehmet Kocakulah participated in the conference.
Beta Alpha Psi is an honor society available only to students enrolled in business schools accredited by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The organization recognizes the outstanding achievement of students enrolled in accounting, finance, and computer information systems programs.
In order to be recognized as a "Superior Chapter," Beta Alpha Psi chapters must meet certain requirements that include submission of reports, periodic initiations, national/regional activities, professional activities and service activities. Since part of the mission of Beta Alpha Psi is to foster enthusiasm for service, chapters are encouraged to participate in service activities that benefit the campus and the community of the chapter.
