HISTORY

Phi Chi Theta is a National 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 Beta Chapter in New York University. Beta Chapter membership is open to all students who have an interest in Business or Economics.

 

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.

OUR VALUES

THE THREE PILLARS

At the New York Beta chapter of Phi Chi Theta, we strive to uphold in our membership the three pillars: professionalism, fraternity, and service. 

 

PROFESSIONALISM

Phi Chi Theta instills a professional confidence in our members to prepare them to enter the working world.

FRATERNITY

Friendships and bonds formed in Phi Chi Theta are genuine & extend for life.

SERVICE

Members of our chapter are constantly seeking new means to help the community.

 

OUR MISSION

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 as well as 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.
