At Victoria University of Wellington, Beta Alpha Psi encourages members to set high standards, and aids members in achieving those standards. As well as our dedication to the core values of Beta Alpha Psi, consistent with the values of all chapters throughout the world, we aim to create a well-rounded member that is equipped for the workplace, conscious of the need to be socially responsible, professionally competent, and attractive to prospective employers.
We renounce discrimination on class, gender, ethnic, and religious grounds, and promote the integration of financial professionals from all walks of life- and society at large.
We aim to deliver maximum value to our growing membership through providing opportunities for our members to be exposed to our corporate partners frequently. This provides an invaluable opportunity to network and impress, as well as to give back to the community by enabling them to partake in charitable work.
All-in-all, we aim to promote and foster the very finest qualities in the financial professionals of the future, and provide them with the platform to maximise the impact that they can have on society through their careers from the very earliest of opportunities.
