Beta Alpha Psi is a nonprofit international honorary and service organization for accounting, finance, and information systems students at AACSB- or EQUIS-accredited universities. 

Its stated purposes include recognition of outstanding academic achievements in the fields of accounting, finance, and information systems; promotion of the study and practice of professional fields related to these disciplines; provision of opportunities for self-development and association among members and practicing financial professionals; and encouragement of a sense of ethical, social, and public responsibilities. The Epsilon Theta Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi was installed at Kansas State University in April 1978.
