The Wayne State University Epsilon Phi chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, the international honors organization for financial information students and professionals, was recognized by its national office as a Distinguished Chapter for the 2016-17 academic year.

To achieve that status, an individual chapter must organize a combination of five or more outreach activities, professional activities and service activities as well as submit beginning and year-end reports. Additionally, a minimum of 20 hours of professional and service activities are required of each individual member and candidate.

Beta Alpha Psi is a national scholastic and professional accounting and finance organization. The primary objective of the organization is to encourage excellence in the field of accounting. This includes providing opportunities for self-development and networking among student members and practicing accountants, as well as encouraging a sense of ethical, social and public responsibility. Many professional and social events are held on and off campus each semester allowing members to gain practical knowledge of the accounting business world.
