WHAT IS ALPHA KAPPA PSI (AKΨ)?

Founded on October 5,1904, at New York University, Alpha Kappa Psi is the world's oldest and largest business fraternity. AKPsi was founded by "Brooklyn Four" --- George L. Bergen, Howard M. Jefferson, Nathan Lane Jr., and Frederic R. Leach --- with the purpose of developing its members into principled business leaders. Every night, the founding fathers would walk home together on the Brooklyn Bridge and as their brotherhood grew stronger, it encouraged them to begin an outline for the future of their organization. 

 

Alpha Kappa Psi is a Professional, Co-ed Business Fraternity that is open to all majors. This professional organization currently has over 298,000 initiated members at 219 universities in 4 countries. With an extensive network of alumni, members have access to countless opportunities and are prepared for a life of success.
