Tabor School of Business honors students for academic achievements

Millikin University's Tabor School of Business inducted 24 new members into the Xi Sigma chapter of Delta Mu Delta (DMD) International Honor Society during a virtual induction ceremony on March 31.

Delta Mu Delta is a business honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities to create a DMD community that fosters the well-being of its individual members and the business community through lifetime membership.

Addressing the newest inductees, Dr. Najiba Benabess, dean of the Tabor School of Business and Xi Sigma chapter advisor said, "Congratulations to all new inductees to the DMD International Honor Society in Business. I am very proud of your academic achievement. Even a global pandemic could not stop you from achieving your goals. You will be in history and for that you are special. I cannot wait to see how you will reinvent the future."

To be eligible for membership, undergraduate students must be at least a junior and have a cumulative GPA of 3.5. MBA students must have completed at least half of the requirements for their degree with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5.

Students who are active members are able to qualify for leadership roles within the local chapter, invitations to the international conference and annual scholarships provided by Delta Mu Delta. Chapters can be installed and members can be initiated only in programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

Delta Mu Delta was founded in 1913 by five professors from Harvard, Yale and New York University who believed that exceptional students in the field of business should be given recognition similar to that by Phi Beta Kappa in the field of liberal arts.
