Accounting students earn global honor

MELISSA VOGRIN ’10

Bradley University’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, (BAP) an honors organization for financial information students and professionals, was named an inaugural KPMG Gold Chapter member.

At the 2009 BAP annual meeting held in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Simon Petravick, professor of accounting, and six of his students learned that they were one of only 14 chapters in the world to receive the initial Gold Chapter Award.

Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) has 284 chapters worldwide, and about 120 are annually recognized as superior. However, this past year the BAP board of directors realized several chapters were going above and beyond the requirements for a superior chapter, and so another challenge was born — the goal of becoming a Gold Chapter. In order to qualify for the award, chapters must have been named superior chapters for at least two years, had active participation in regional and national activities within the organization, and submitted a 10-minute video detailing student-led programming and activities.

Beta Alpha Psi is open to juniors, seniors, and graduate students, and its primary objective is to encourage and give recognition to scholastic and professional excellence in the business information field.
