Beta Alpha Psi Earns Superior Chapter Status
July 31, 2020
MISSOULA - The University of Montana Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) chapter in the College of Business was recently recognized as a Superior Chapter during the 2019-20 school year by the Beta Alpha Psi National Offices.
Beta Alpha Psi is an international honor organization for accounting, finance, and information systems students. Only institutions with AACSB or EQUIS accreditation can have a BAP chapter. Students in BAP must meet GPA requirements to be initiated and maintain certain levels of service hours and professional hours to be in good standing. The chapter award system is based on the average number of service hours and professional hours per member/candidate for a given chapter.
Recognition as a Superior Chapter comes from the Beta Alpha Psi board of directors and is a significant accomplishment that indicates student members have far exceeded the baseline requirements of Beta Alpha Psi in the areas of academics, professionalism and leadership. Superior Chapters receive a financial award contributed by KPMG and the KPMG Foundation, and a recognition plaque.
Much of the credit for this honor goes to last year’s BAP officers: President Madi Gordon, VP of Prof. Events Abbey Turner, Treasurer Suchan Jeong, Secretary Meghan Gibson
