History, Mission, Benefits, and Services of Delta Mu Delta
Founded in 1913, Delta Mu Delta (DMD) International Honor Society for Business is one of the oldest and most successful honor societies of those in existence today. At the time of the release of this Resource Guide , DMD is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. The Greek letters, DMD stand for Dia Matheseos Dynamis, signifying the motto of the Society, "Through Knowledge, Power." To be awarded the Delta Mu Delta Key should be the ambition of every person who pursues a degree in business where Delta Mu Delta membership is possible. Building on the foresight and commitment of the work of five faculty members at Harvard University, Yale University, and New York University in 1913, D MD has consistently pursued excellence and professionalism:
This essential purpose for the society is best revealed in the DMD Mission Statement: 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 life-time membership.
Benefits for Students
Membership in Delta Mu Delta provides exceptional students and graduates with a number of member benefits:
Lifetime Recognition for Outstanding Achievement
Delta Mu Delta membership is a mark of excellence in business studies. It communicates to employers, family, friends, and colleagues that the student has demonstrated exceptional work in his or her academic studies. It signals to the world that the student has a commitment to excellence in the classroom, a desire for leadership and service to the community, and willingness to set personal high standards. Because membership in Delta Mu Delta is considered among the highest international recognitions one can earn, members list it on their résumé as a signal to future employers of their accomplishments. In addition, they wear the DMD Key on business occasions and display their framed membership certificate at their place of work.
It is a common practice at graduations for honors graduates to be especially recognized. This can include special placement or notations in the graduation program as well as acknowledgement by the chief executive officer presiding over the ceremony. In addition, DMD encourages all graduates to wear their graduation regalia with pride. Honor cords, stoles and medallions are keepsakes for life.
An online member magazine - Vision - features outstanding chapter and individual member accomplishments. This is an excellent resource for members and chapter faculty advisers to learn what other chapters are doing for their business programs, alumni, and communities. Individuals are at liberty to contact members reporting on chapter activities for more details and assistance.
Acknowledgment for Federal Employment
Membership in Delta Mu Delta fulfills one of the requirements for entrance at the GS-7 level in numerous professional and technical positions within U.S.A. federal service. This enables DMD members to start their government career at a higher level of salary than might otherwise be possible.
