Beta Alpha Psi (BAP)

Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) is an international honours organisation for accounting, finance and information systems students and professionals. It aims to be a premier organisation that will serve to bridge the university experience and professional world.

Our primary objective is to encourage and give recognition to academic and professional excellence in the financial and business information field. This includes:

  • Promoting the professional study and practice of accounting, finance and information systems,
  • Providing opportunities for personal development of technical and professional skills to complement formal education,
  • Providing opportunities for participation in community services,
  • Recognising outstanding academic and professional achievements,
  • Developing lifelong relationships between members, faculties and practicing professionals, and
  • Encouraging and fostering ethical, social and public responsibility.

The Auckland Chapter was founded in May 2008. It is the first chapter established in New Zealand and one of the first BAP chapters established internationally.
