Alpha Kappa Psi is a Professional Co-ed Business Fraternity founded in 1904 with the purpose of developing its members into principled business leaders. Initially founded by four men at New York University, the professional organization now has over 298,000 initiated members at 219 universities in 4 countries. Alpha Kappa Psi has grown to be the oldest and largest business fraternity in the world! With an extensive network of alumni, members can land opportunities at some of the most profitable companies in the world. As one of the best professional co-ed business fraternities, we are indeed preparing our brothers for a life of success. The University of Southern Mississippi joined this esteemed brotherhood with the establishment of the Tau Omega Chapter in 2002 and upholds the fraternity’s traditions and values through its workings of hosting professional events, community service, and additional campus and community outreach.
