Alpha Kappa Psi.


Alpha Kappa Psi is built on two pillars: brotherhood and professionalism. Bonded by friendship and an interest in business, four men at New York University founded the nation’s first professional business fraternity in 1904, Alpha Kappa Psi. “The Brooklyn Four” sought to establish an organization that would foster the knowledge and skills essential to their personal and professional growth; vital elements that were not to be found in these men’s academic curriculum.

Today, the world has witnessed the evolution of their dream into the largest and most thriving professional fraternity of business in the United States. With College Chapters on over three hundred campuses and nearly one hundred Alumni Chapters nation-wide, Alpha Kappa Psi has also become one of the most renowned professional networks in the world, giving its growing number of 200,000 members the competitive edge necessary to make their thrust into corporate America. Alpha Kappa Psi is also growing on an international scale, with more than 200 chapters in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

Some famous alumni of Alpha Kappa Psi include Lee Iococca, Malcom S. Forbes. Jr., George Kozmetsky, J.C. Penny, Ronald Reagan, and Sam Walton.

Who We Are

Founded on May 14, 1989 at the University of California at San Diego, the Nu Xi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi holds the same century-old tradition and vision as was once held by the Brooklyn Four. Acknowledging that UCSD has no official program of business, Alpha Kappa Psi was created here to provide the University’s student body with an opportunity to attain the critical professional skills necessary to excel in tomorrow’s workforce.

Whether you’re a management science major eager to excel in the finance world, a creative artist hoping to delve into sales and marketing, or a bioengineer passionate about entrepreneurship, Alpha Kappa Psi realizes that talent comes in many forms. As the oldest and largest professional business fraternity in the world, we invite students to join us during our Spring Rush 2014 to see what our organization has to offer.
