Delta Mu Delta
Delta Mu Delta is an international honor society in business administration that recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities to create a DMD community that fosters the well-being of its individual members and the business community through life-time membership. Specifically, the purposes of Delta Mu Delta are twofold:
1. To promote higher scholarship in education for business.
2. To recognize and reward scholastic attainment in business subjects.
Delta Mu Delta was founded by a Dean at Harvard University and four professors from Yale University and New York University in November 1913. The Greek letters in the Society’s name stand for Dia Mathessos Dynamis, signifying Through Knowledge, Power. The Beta Pi Chapter of Delta Mu Delta was established at Mount St. Mary’s University in 1974.
