On Thursday May 5, College of Business Professor John Coulter inducted eight new students into the Western New England University chapter of Beta Alpha Psi Business Information Honor Society, during a ceremony in Churchill Hall. Founded in 1919, Beta Alpha Psi is an honor society 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.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be part of Beta Alpha Psi," remarked Emily Trumbley. "When I switched my major after freshman year from pre-pharmacy to accounting, Professor Coulter helped me catch up and stay on track to graduate on time. I’m so thankful for his guidance.”
The goal of this socoety is to encourage and recognize scholastic and professional excellence in the business information field. This includes promoting the study and practice of accounting, finance and information systems, providing opportunities for self-development, service and association among members and practicing professionals, and encouraging a sense of ethical, social, and public responsibility.
