On Saturday, April 5, 2014, the Lawrence Technological University College of Management welcomed its inaugural class of Delta Mu Delta inductees. Delta Mu Delta, international honor society in business, is an organization dedicated to recognizing students’ academic achievement in business subjects.
Dr. Betty Jean Hebel, regional representative for Delta Mu Delta, first installed the Nu Alpha chapter at LTU as an official chapter in the society. Following the installation, the chapter’s first honorary members were inducted into Delta Mu Delta. Nu Alpha’s initial honorary members are Dr. Virinder Moudgil, President of LTU; Dr. Maria Vaz, Provost of LTU; Dr. Anne Kohnke Assistant Professor in the College of Management and new faculty adviser for Delta Mu Delta, and Dr. Jackie Stavros, Professor in the College of Management. These four honorary members were chosen based on their commitment to student success and dedication to the College of Management’s overall mission.
After the honorary induction, Dr. Hebel and Dr. Kohnke welcomed 28 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students into membership in Delta Mu Delta. The criteria for induction into Delta Mu Delta as an undergraduate student is a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2, completion of at least 50 percent of the required credits toward their degree, and completion of at least 24 credits at LTU. Graduate and doctoral students must have completed at least 50 percent of the required credits toward their degree and must have a cumulative GPA of 3.85 or higher. All candidates for membership in the society must also be in the top 20 percent of their class.
Following the student induction and dinner, President Moudgil delivered a brief address entitled “Managing Institutions in a Global Society.” During his keynote address, Dr. Moudgil spoke to our inductees and their families about the importance of developing and utilizing their skills in both domestic and international venues.
Congratulations to all of our students who were inducted in recognition of their outstanding academic success! We look forward to the future of Delta Mu Delta on LTU’s campus!
