Beta Alpha Psi promotes the study and practice of accounting, finance and information systems. It also provides opportunities for personal growth, service, and association between members and professionals who practice careers in these fields. The organization strives to encourage a sense of ethical, social, and public responsibility.



Founded in 1919, Beta Alpha Psi is an honor organization for financial information students and professionals. There are over 300 chapters on college and university campuses with over 300,000 members initiated since Beta Alpha Psi's formation.

The Board consists of thirteen financial information professionals or professors of accounting, finance or information systems, the chair of the International Advisory Forum, and two alumni representatives. The alumni representatives are chosen from recent graduates who were active in Beta Alpha Psi chapters.


A local chapter is comprised of student and faculty members at each school. Student officers guide the chapter's operations and activities, supervised by the faculty advisors. The Iota Chi chapter at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona was founded on March 3, 2000.
