Beta Alpha Psi Wins Three Awards

October 22, 2019

Students of Bradley University's Beta Alpha Psi bring home three significant awards this semester.

Beta Alpha Psi is an international honorary organization for accounting majors. This group provides accounting students with the opportunity to learn more about the accounting profession while connecting with professionals and fellow peers. Students with a 3.0 GPA in 300 level accounting classes and above are eligible.

Bradley was awarded first place at both the regional and national Best Practices competition. The team first won the regional contest earlier this year, then at the Beta Alpha Psi annual meeting, students competed against other regional winners and took home the top prize. This was the third time the Bradley chapter competed in the Best Practices competition at the annual meeting and the first time it earned a first-place award. All team members are senior Accounting majors:

  • Amanda Meyer of St Louis, MO was part of the both the regional and national 1st place teams.
  • Morgan Weeks of Decatur, IL was part of the 1st place regional team.
  • Gabrielle Cabell of Overland Park, KS was part of the 1st place regional team. 
  • Tyler Weber of Watertown, WI was part of the 1st place national team.

Chapter advisor, Dr.Simon Petravick, says "Best Practices is where chapters share their best practices related to one of the three topics designated by the Beta Alpha Psi executive office. We participated in the Roots category. The students focused their presentation on how we provide programs related to dealing with ethical issues."

The Bradley chapter was also recognized as a "Gold Chapter". Only 9 chapters received this distinction representing the highest honor a chapter can achieve. There are approximately 300 chapters in the world. This is the 7th time the Bradley chapter has received a Gold Chapter Award.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
