The Alpha Beta Chapter

Alpha Kappa Psi was first established in UC Berkeley on March 8, 1921, making it the oldest business organization on campus. The Alpha Beta Chapter is your first step into Alpha Kappa Psi's international brotherhood. Our brothers hail from all majors and backgrounds, producing a uniqueness that extends into our vast alumni network. Some of our numerous activities include sponsoring the Big Four Forum and sponsoring case competitions on campus. In 2002, we introduced Alpha Beta Consulting (ABC), a non-profit student consulting group. In 2007, Berkeley Corporate Solutions (BCS) was launched as the business-side consulting arm of our chapter.

One unique aspect of the Alpha Beta Chapter is our recognition that professional skills and basic understandings of business fields are essential to a wide variety of careers. From our founding, we have embraced the diversity of the UC Berkeley campus and take pride in the fact that we have brothers from a wide range of backgrounds.

Alpha Kappa Psi, Alpha Beta Chapter, is sponsored by the Walter A. Haas School of Business.

Fraternity History

In 1904, four men at New York University came together to found the nation's first professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi. Driven by a spirit of brotherhood and a vision of uniting people with common business interests, the "Brooklyn Four" created Alpha Kappa Psi as an organization that would foster both the personal and professional growth of its members.

Alpha Kappa Psi provides brothers with professional guidance throughout their college years to ensure that upon graduation, they are all equipped with the skills required to thrive in any work environment. Through interview training, resume building, public speaking workshops and a one-on-one mentorship program, Alpha Kappa Psi develops the business leaders of the future. We invite you to join our brotherhood and become a part of the lifelong experience that is Alpha Kappa Psi.

Today, Alpha Kappa Psi is the largest fraternity in the United States and is also the only business fraternity with international chapters. Worldwide, there are over 295 college chapters, 90 alumni chapters, and 200,000 members, all dedicated to the highest level of brotherhood and professional development.
