Who We Are

Founded in 1919, Beta Alpha Psi has a history spanning over a century dedicated to promoting excellence as an international honors society for accounting, finance, and information systems students.

With over 300 chapters on college and university campuses and over 300,000 members worldwide, Beta Alpha Psi offers an extensive professional network. 

The Beta Eta Chapter at SDSU was founded in January 1960. Joining our chapter means being part of a member-focused organization, dedicated to providing you with the resources you need to succeed. We are not just students, we are leaders in our field.

Our Values


We know it’s hard out there: maintaining your grades, getting a job, and finding your place. We recognize that, which is why we create a culture of collaboration, service, and support. Beta Alpha Psi is dedicated to paying it forward, and because of this, we actively serve the community and give our members the resources and support they need to thrive.


Beta Alpha Psi gets people jobs - that has always been our purpose. We know that our members are ambitious academically and professionally. At Beta Alpha Psi, we promise to help and inspire your future career path by expanding your network, deepening your knowledge, and providing the support you need to continue to dream big.


Beta Alpha Psi is an internationally recognized accounting honors organization, and its reputation speaks to the quality of its members. Through our “pay it forward” culture, we foster lifelong ethical, social, and public responsibility. Employers can be confident they’re getting good people who care about their work, their grades, and their community.


"I really appreciate how BAP provides a sense of community and helps students in career readiness. The most helpful event was ‘Meet the Firms’ because you get to mingle with professionals and other like-minded people, and it’s a great opportunity to seek internships or employment. Weekly BAP meetings are helpful too because they give you an in-depth look into the accounting industry and various career paths. Volunteer events with BAP are really fun because you get to socialize with your peers while making a positive impact in your community. Thanks, BAP!"
