Beta Alpha Psi honor organization inducts new members

More than a dozen Martha and Spencer Love School of Business students were initiated into Elon’s chapter of the international honor organization.

Nineteen students were initiated into Elon’s Lambda Xi chapter of Beta Alpha Psi (BAP), the international honor organization for financial information students and professionals, on Sept. 5, 2017.

Nineteen students were initiated into Beta Alpha Psi.

Danny Lanier, assistant professor of accounting, was invited to speak at the annual fall interest meeting following the initiation. He spoke about students’ transition to professional life and how Beta Alpha Psi can be an important part of that transition.

BAP initiates have met the requirements for both service and attendance at professional meetings as well as maintained an overall 3.0 GPA with a 3.0 minimum in an upper-level accounting or finance class. The chapter requires six hours of service within BAP and two hours outside of BAP per semester.

The chapter holds weekly meetings with guest speakers to provide insight into members’ potential industry or firm. Past guest speakers have included representatives from PwC, KPMG, EY, Deloitte, Lincoln Financial, RSM and Grant Thornton. On Sept. 11, the chapter will host the annual Accounting Meet and Greet, which connects employers with Elon talent.
