Financial Information Student Group (Beta Alpha Psi) receives national recognition

Financial Information Student Group Receives National Recognition

The Ohio Northern University James F. Dicke College of Business Administration Mu Delta chapter of Beta Alpha Psi was recognized as a Distinguished Chapter for the 2008-09 year.

Under the leadership of Dexter Woods, Ohio Northern professor of business administration, the Beta Alpha Psi Board of Directors honored the ONU chapter for far exceeding the minimum requirements of Beta Alpha Psi and excelling in the areas of academics, professionalism and leadership.

Woods said he was especially pleased because ONU was only installed as a new chapter in October and has already received national recognition.

"The recognition is based on the average number of hours each chapter member engages in professional activities, service activities and national/regional activities," Woods said. "With an average of 20 members, the club would not have earned status as a new chapter or as a distinguished chapter without the excellent participation of each and every member. Such participation will serve them well as they transition from students to professionals.

Beta Alpha Psi is an honorary organization for financial information students and professionals. The primary objective of Beta Alpha Psi is to encourage and give recognition to scholastic and professional excellence in the business information field. This includes promoting the study and practice of accounting, finance and information systems; providing opportunities for self-development, service and association among members and practicing professionals; and encouraging a sense of ethical, social and public responsibility.
