Phi Chi Theta is a National coeducational Professional Fraternity in Business and Economics. It was founded on June 16, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois. The founders were six women from two of the competing business fraternities, Phi Chi Kappa and Phi Chi Epsilon. Those women joined forces to form an organization whose purpose is:
“To promote the cause of higher business education and training for all individuals, to foster high ideals for everyone pursuing a career in business; to encourage fraternity and cooperation among people preparing for such careers; and to stimulate the spirit of sacrifice and unselfish devotion to the attainment of such ends.”
Today, the Phi Chi Theta National Chapter is compromised of 37 Collegiate and Alumni Chapters. Phi Chi Theta has over 1,600 members across the country.
