Beta Alpha Psi

        Iota Sigma Chapter

Beta Alpha Psi is a national honor society and a scholastic and professional accounting and finance fraternity. Only AACSB-accredited Colleges of Business may have a chapter.

Beta Alpha Psi recognizes outstanding academic achievements in the field of accounting and finance; promotes the study and practice of accounting and finance; provides opportunities for self-development, service, and association among members and practicing accounting and finance professionals; and encourages a sense of ethical, social, and public responsibility.

Beta Alpha Psi supports the Operation White Socks drive by raising money through the sale of paper N’s. The organization also sponsors Student/CPA Night with the Louisiana State Society of CPAs. Participants at student night get to meet employers and exchange contact information. Beta Alpha Psi members also participate in professional workshops during the semester and offer tutoring to Accounting 205 students.

Students are invited to join if they have:

  • declared accounting or finance as their major,
