Frequently Asked Questions

Am I Eligible to Join Kappa Beta Delta?

To obtain more information about Kappa Beta Delta or to see if you qualify for membership, contact the Kappa Beta Delta faculty advisor at your school. If you don't know who the KBD Advisor at your school is, contact the Central Office at kbd@acbsp.org.

Eligibility Requirements

Students are eligible for lifetime membership based upon the following criteria:

• Must rank in the upper 20% of students pursuing business degrees at the time of invitation to membership

• Must have completed a minimum of 15 semester hours of credit, of which a minimum of six are in business subjects toward the degree program

• Must have a minimum grade point of average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale

Transfer students who meet the qualifications for membership may be inducted after they have completed a minimum of one term of work within the department, division, or school of business. Provided the student’s overall record is of Kappa Beta Delta caliber, he/she will become a member.

An invitation to join Kappa Beta Delta must come from the Faculty Advisor or Business Department. The KBD Central Office does not have the ability to invite students directly, nor do they allow students to join without a connection to an ACBSP Accredited Institution.

How do I increase attendance at our KBD meetings?

  • Consider trying an e-meeting using GoTo Meeting or Google Hangout

  • Schedule your meetings when the majority of your students can attend, consider using an online scheduler like WhenIsGood (http://whenisgood.net)
