Delta Mu Delta Induction Ceremony
Apr 22 @ 5:30 pm

Reception – Alumni Theater Lobby 5:30 pm
Ceremony – Alumni Theater 6:00 pm

Please come to congratulate the inductees of the Delta Mu Delta Honor Society.

The purposes of Delta Mu Delta are to promote higher scholarship in training for business and to
recognize and reward scholastic attainment in business subjects.

Delta Mu Delta was founded on November 18, 1913. Five professors from Harvard, Yale and New York
University who believed that exceptional students in the field of business should be given recognition similar to that by Phi Beta Kappa in the field of liberal arts, founded our Society. Delta Mu Delta was incorporated in 1952, and in 1963 was admitted to membership in the
Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS). In 1992, the Society established an affiliation with ACBSP whereby future chapter establishment occurs only at colleges and universities with business programs
accredited by the ACBSP at the baccalaureate/graduate level.
