A Brief Overview

Oregon State University's chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi, the Theta Chapter, was the 8th chapter created in the fraternity.  The chapter seeks to recruit the leaders of tomorrow's business world - men and women of integrity and character who embody the ideals and beliefs of Alpha Kappa Psi.  Alpha Kappa Psi is a dynamic environment in which members can actively participate in the operations of a business through active involvement and various leadership positions. Where better to develop your skills in a forgiving environment that allows you to make mistakes, learn, and grow as a business leader? 

Alpha Kappa Psi is Professional Fraternity, whose purpose is developing well-trained, ethical, skilled, resourceful, experienced business leaders. AKPsi has unique blend of both the positives of a ‘professional' fraternity and a 'social' fraternity.

This fraternity combines the brotherhood found in Greek life, while providing the prestige, reputation, and professional training that are sought after in the Business world. We are the oldest and largest professional business fraternity, and the only business fraternity to have active chapters overseas.

AKPsi isn't something to simply put on your résumé during college. What we offer is an
experience that you will not find elsewhere. AKPsi offers a brotherhood that lasts a lifetime, memories to cherish, an edge above your peers, and networking that is unsurpassed. Alpha Kappa Psi is a fraternity for life. Here at Oregon State, we will build an organization synonymous with excellence, putting on professional, service, and social events of the highest caliber.

Alpha Kappa Psi offers exceptional programs that student and alumni members can take part in. Below are some events that happen either annually or biennially that we partcipate in:


Held in 5 different cities across the country, the 2010 Principled Business Leadership Institute offers students a weekend focusing on professional skill building at the individual level, while allowing for the opportunity to network with other chapters and business professionals. Attendees will participate in a curriculum centered on the values of principled business leadership and the values of AKPsi—brotherhood, unity, integrity, service, and knowledge.

Case Competition

Alpha Kappa Psi Foundation is sponsoring the Case Competition at February’s Principled Business Leadership Institute (formerly Success Institute). At each PBLI teams will compete for the top three spots and scholarships. Through the foundation’s Case Competition, students are introduced to the realities of decision making—including incomplete information, time constraints and conflicting goals--giving them first-hand experience in analyzing business situations. The competition is designed to stimulate students’ thinking by challenging their capabilities and preparing them for future managerial decision making.


The Convention is held every two years and consists of two main parts — the Chapter Congress Meeting and the College of Leadership. Additional events include the Celebration of Brotherhood, Brothers Night Out and the Grand Banquet.
