Beta Alpha Psi takes second in international competition

Beta Alpha Psi Best Practice
UNG's Nu Gamma chapter of Beta Alpha Psi finished in second place in the international Deloitte Best Practice Competition for its simulcasts of meetings between the Dahlonega and Gainesville campuses.

The University of North Georgia (UNG) Nu Gamma chapter of Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) took second place in the international Deloitte Best Practice Competition. The award was announced at the BAP annual meeting in Washington, D.C., this August.

UNG's BAP chapter in the Mike Cottrell College of Business (MCCB) previously took first place at the Southeast regional meeting. Beta Alpha Psi is an honor organization for financial information students and professionals.

The topic for the competition was "Launching Into the Next Century," and the UNG group's best practice was its use of technology to simulcast meetings between UNG's Dahlonega and Gainesville campuses.

Seattle University won and the University of Sydney took third.

This marks the third year UNG submitted an abstract for the competition, finishing second in its region in 2016 before placing internationally this year.

Jennifer Schneider, assistant professor of accounting and BAP faculty adviser on the Gainesville Campus, said the judges commented that UNG's use of simulcasts for its Beta Alpha Psi meetings is "very innovative and relevant in the business world."

Martha Merritt is the BAP faculty adviser on the Dahlonega Campus.

Students who either attended or participated in the competitions were Michael Thomas, Jae Beach, Jenna Allen, Cayla Morgan, Jessica Kubacki, Mansi Patel, and Alashia Damron.
