Delta Mu Delta was founded in 1913 by faculty from New York University, Harvard University and Yale University who believed that recognition should be given to outstanding students. The purpose of Delta Mu Delta is twofold: to promote higher scholarship in education, and to recognize and reward scholastic attainment in business subjects.
Although it started as a local organization, other colleges and universities soon added chapters and in 1952, a national chapter was organized to bind the individual chapters into a cohesive unit to carry forward the aims of the Society. In 1963, Delta Mu Delta was admitted to the Association of College Honor Societies. This association is an organization of 69 International Honor Societies established in 1925 to develop and maintain the standards of honor societies and to increase their usefulness.
In 1992, Delta Mu Delta formed a partnership the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), the accrediting body for the LMU School of Business. In 2012, LMU’s Mu Kappa became the 298th Chapter of Delta Mu Delta.
