Beta Alpha Psi will shape the financial and business information professions by developing members into ethical, professional, and confident leaders.


Our purpose for each of our members is to provide professional opportunities that help each member stand out as they enter the workforce. UVU is traditionally a commuter school and we have found that our members fit that category. Because of that, we know that recruiting and professional networking can be a difficult task to accomplish. We strive to provide opportunities to help our members navigate recruiting and professional networking with ease. Please join us for a meeting! You do not have to be a member to attend a meeting and you do not have to currently be studying accounting. If you are wondering if accounting is for you this is a great place to start. You will find our event schedule below.


The purpose of Beta Alpha Psi is to:

  • recognize outstanding academic achievements in the field of accounting, finance, and information systems;
  • promote the study and practice of professional fields related to these disciplines;
  • provide opportunities for self-development and association among members and practicing financial professionals;
  • encourage a sense of ethical, social, and public responsibilities


The mission of Beta Alpha Psi, the premier international honor and service organization for financial and business information students and professionals, is to inspire and support excellence by:

  • encouraging the study and practice of accountancy, finance, and information systems;
  • providing opportunities for service, professional development, and interaction among members and financial professionals; and
  • fostering lifelong ethical, social, and public responsibilities.
