Delta Mu Delta

Delta Mu Delta is an international honor society established to recognize and reward superior scholastic achievement of students in business administration. Delta Mu Delta stands for the Greek phrase - DIA MATHESSOS DYNAMIS,  which means- THROUGH KNOWLEDGE, POWER. In this case, the power lies in the management for social and economic good.

The Society was founded in 1913 by five professors in New York University's School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance.  Their purpose was to promote higher scholarship in education for business, and to recognize and reward scholastic attainment in business courses. In 1963, Delta Mu Delta joined the Association of College Honor Societies, which recognizes and promotes academic excellence in higher education. The

Society established an affiliation with the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs in 1992. This is the national accrediting body of Ashland University's  undergraduate and graduate business programs.

The badge of the Society is the key, symbolizing the key which unlocks the treasure of knowledge. It is in the form of the Greek letter Delta. On the front of the key appear the Greek initials of the Society and above them is a full-rigged ship with sails set and colors flying. This symbolizes the activities of business and commerce.
