Leadership in Beta Alpha Psi

"The vast majority of business executives will tell you “networking” is a significant component of entering a career and eventually moving on to higher-level jobs and successful careers.

For several decades, the network that you need to learn about all of the above starts with on campus student organizations. This was and still is where you will learn (before being offered a job) what potential employers seek from you, the student and soon to be a job seeker. Stated alternatively, networking is a significant component in securing entry-level job offers and promotions thereafter.

Beta Alpha Psi will be celebrating 100 Years of facilitating connections between job seekers and job providers. Regardless of your major, it has been and will continue to be one of the preeminent organizations that link students and jobs." 

- Professor William Wells, University of Washington(Retired), Past Beta Alpha Psi Board Member and Director at Large, 2005-2008
