Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) is an international honorary organisation for accounting, finance and information systems students and professionals with a vision to shape business professions by developing members into ethical, professional, and confident leaders. To achieve this, our chapter provides opportunities for self-development, service, and interaction with practicing professionals, encourages a sense of ethical, social and public responsibility, while promoting the study and practice of accountancy.

BAP provides the essential link between taught theory and practice by providing a safe environment for students to interact, develop skills, and build relationships with potential employers. BAP members develop leadership skills, have a commitment to lifelong professional development and ethical behaviour, and are rewarded for their academic success throughout their membership.
