University of Phoenix-Cleveland Campus welcomed the Delta Mu Delta business honor society to its campus with an induction ceremony on April 8 that included 29 new members and three honorary members. While there are four other Delta Mu Delta chapters in the state, this is the first in Northeast Ohio.

Delta Mu Delta is recognized internationally as one of the business community’s premier academic societies for undergraduate, graduate and doctoral business students. Founded in 1913 by a dean from Harvard University and four professors from Yale University and New York University, the honor society “recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities to create a Delta Mu Delta community that fosters the well-being of its individual members and the business community through life-time membership,” according to Delta Mu Delta (www.deltamudelta.org).

W. Paul Borkowski, Faculty Adviser for the new chapter as well as University of Phoenix’s area chair for computer information systems, noted that only business programs accredited by the ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs) are eligible for a Delta Mu Delta chapter on their campuses.

“The application process for hosting a chapter is quite rigorous and demanding, as are the educational standards for membership in the honor society,” Borkowski explained, noting that undergraduate students must carry a 3.7 GPA and must have completed 75 percent of their program of study in order to be considered, while graduate students must carry both a 3.8 GPA as well as having completed at least 50 percent of their graduate coursework.

“Our business program has grown to be among our most popular fields of study for University of Phoenix,” added Gina Cuffari, Vice President for Ohio Campuses at University of Phoenix. “Adding Delta Mu Delta to our campus life is consistent with the mission of both our organizations to provide a deep educational experience that benefits the individual and their communities.”

The Business School at University of Phoenix offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs in disciplines that include Business Administration, public administration, accountancy, organizational leadership, finance, human resources, entrepreneurship, global business management and sustainable enterprise management, among others.
