A Brief History
Alpha Kappa Psi was founded in 1904 at New York University on the principles of promoting institutions of business education, developing future leaders and fostering appreciation for higher ideals in business. Today the fraternity has grown to become the oldest and largest professional business fraternity in the world. With nearly 240,000 initiated members and more than 200 chapters, it is among the 20 largest college fraternities. The men and women of AKPsi reflect the world’s diversity and are united by a common interest in business.
College men and women everywhere are discovering that Alpha Kappa Psi is much more than just another organization or club—it is a unique, prestigious association of students, professors, graduates and professionals with common interests and goals. They join Alpha Kappa Psi to take advantage of valuable educational, friendship and networking opportunities.
When you join Alpha Kappa Psi, you join an elite group of professionals who are committed to keeping their skills sharp and careers on track. Members gain many valuable skills on the local level as they operate their chapters as "franchises” of Alpha Kappa Psi. Such professional development, when marketed to employers, will set you apart from your peers.
Members form meaningful, lifelong friendships with a multitude of people, from fellow students to local business leaders and faculty. The bonds of brotherhood unites members regardless of age, location and experience.
