ABOUT PHI CHI THETA
Phi Chi Theta is a National coeducational Professional Fraternity in Business and Economics. Phi Chi Theta was founded on June 16, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois. The founders were six women from two of the competing business fraternities, Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Kappa Epsilon. Edna Blake Davis was the founder of the New York Beta Chapter in New York University. These women joined forces to form an organization whose purpose is:
"To promote the cause of higher business education and training for all individuals, to foster high ideals for everyone pursuing a career in business; to encourage fraternity and cooperation among people preparing for such careers; and to stimulate the spirit of sacrifice and unselfish devotion to the attainment of such ends."
Today, the Phi Chi Theta National Chapter is comprised of 38 Collegiate and Alumni Chapters
. Phi Chi Theta has over 1,600 members across the country. The National Chapter is the governing body of Phi Chi Theta and consists of the duly elected National Officers and National Delegates. The National Officers
are deemed the Executive Council, and have the authority to administer the affairs of the Fraternity during the interim between Biennial National Chapter Meetings. Phi Chi Theta is a member of and affiliated with the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)
, the Professional Fraternity Association (PFA)
, and the College Fraternity Editors Association (CFEA)

The mission of Phi Chi Theta is to provide a national and local network to share resources, ideas, and concepts. To accomplish this, we organize an extensive lecture series each semester, which provides opportunities to interact and network with established professionals from various backgrounds. In addition, we present annual alumni panels and occasional resume and interviewing workshops.
As important as it is to prepare for entering the business world, Phi Chi Theta strongly believes that we must never forgo our humanity for the sake of professional achievement.
