Prestige and recognition are among the primary benefits that come with membership in an honor society.

But there’s also the opportunity to network with fellow members—a useful tool, particularly in business and job-search situations.

 

Current and future students stand to gain significantly from Capella University’s recent membership in the business honor society Delta Mu Delta. “Membership to the Delta Mu Delta honor society is recognition of Capella’s high standards and signifies our commitment to providing the highest quality business education for our students,” says Barbara Butts Williams, PhD, Capella’s dean of business.

Delta Mu Delta, an international organization, recognizes and encourages academic excellence. It honors students who have attained superior academic records in college business programs that have both regional accreditation and accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Capella University’s business programs and selected specializations are accredited* by ACBSP. Capella University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Capella’s chapter, Xi Delta, joins two existing honor societies with Capella chapters: Chi Sigma Iota, dedicated to promoting excellence in counseling, and Tau Upsilon Alpha, part of the National Organization of Human Services. Capella will invite qualified students to join Xi Delta beginning in August 2015, says Butts Williams. “We are proud to support our business students in their pursuit of excellence well into their business careers and beyond.”
