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.
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
membership provides recognition for a lifetime. As the highest national recognition
a business student can earn, it is appropriate to include Delta Mu Delta membership
on one's resume.
