Beta Alpha Psi is an international honor society made up of elite accounting, finance and business information students and professionals. The Mu Alpha chapter at Ithaca College invites local Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), Big 4 recruiters and other notable alumni to speak, interact and network with its members. The honor society is also focused on working in the community and within the business school. We continue to partner with the Ithaca YMCA, the Ithaca Youth Bureau and operate the Accounting and Finance Tutor Lab located on the first floor of the business school.
The mission of Beta Alpha Psi, the premier international honor and service organization for financial and business information students and professionals, is to inspire and support excellence by:
- Encouraging the study and practice of accountancy, finance, and information systems;
- providing opportunities for service, professional development, and interaction among members and financial professionals; and
- fostering lifelong ethical, social, and public responsibilities.
Every year, the Mu Alpha chapter organizes a “Meet the Firms” trip to New York City where students are able to network with the top firms and alumni that recruit Ithaca College graduates. This past year, we traveled to many firms including PwC, JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch, Crowe Horwath, BlackRock, EY, KPMG, Deloitte, and the New York Yankees.
