Delta Mu Delta is an international honor society established in
1913 to recognize students in accredited business schools for their high
academic achievement in baccalaureate, masters and doctorate programs. Over its
life span, Delta Mu Delta has grown its current membership to include more than
240 campuses worldwide. Delta Mu Delta has more than 160,000 members residing
in 175+ countries. Through an agreement made in January 1992 between Delta Mu
Delta and ACBSP, establishment of Delta Mu Delta chapters is now exclusively at
colleges and universities with business programs which are accredited by ACBSP
at the baccalaureate/graduate levels.
Value for Students
Students are invited to a lifetime membership based on the
following eligibility guidelines: must be in the top 20% of their respective
class and be in good standing with their institution; undergraduates must have
completed one-half of their course work and have a cumulative average grade of
at least .25 above a "B"; graduate and doctorate students must have
completed at least one-half the requirements for their degree with a cumulative
average grade of at least .60 above a "B". Individual chapters may
establish more stringent requirements. Those students who accept membership are
publicly recognized by their chapters/institutions and are presented a
certificate of membership and the key of Delta Mu Delta at a formal initiation
In addition to providing public recognition to business students
who have distinguished themselves in their schools of business, Delta Mu Delta
also annually awards scholarships and recognitions to members based on academic
record and performance, demonstrated leadership and service, and character and
"Through Knowledge, Power"
The Greek letters, DMD stands for Dia Matheseos Dynamis,
signifying the motto of the Society, "Through Knowledge, Power." To
be awarded the Delta Mu Delta Key should be the ambition of every person who
pursues a degree in business where Delta Mu Delta membership is possible.
Chapter Resource Guide
The ability to petition Delta Mu Delta for a chapter is one of the rewards of ACBSP accreditation and provides a means by which an institution may give lifetime international recognition to its outstanding graduates.
In May 2014, ACBSP and Delta Mu Delta released a Chapter Resource Guide with information about our work together including important information about why and how a DMD Chapter should be created on an accredited member campus. The Guide was funded by Delta Mu Delta as part of a contribution to the ACBSP Developing Global Business Leaders Campaign. The announcement came as part of the DMD Centennial Celebration.
The Guide contents include:
- Reasons why students, faculty, business units, and educational institutions would want to have a chapter on their campus.
- Origins, traditions, and certification of honor societies including Delta Mu Delta.
- How support of a Delta Mu Delta chapter can be of benefit in seeking or renewing ACBSP accreditation with references to specific standards.
- Services and products provided by DMD headquarters.
