History

Phi Chi Theta is a National Co-Educational Professional Fraternity in Business and Economics. Phi Chi Theta was founded on June 16, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois. The founders were six women from two of the competing business fraternities, Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Kappa Epsilon. Edna Blake Davis was the founder of the Beta Chapter in New York University. Beta Chapter membership is open to all students who have an interest in Business or Economics. 

Today, the Phi Chi Theta National Chapter is comprised of 38 Collegiate and Alumni Chapters. Phi Chi Theta has over 1,600 members across the country. The National Chapter is the governing body of Phi Chi Theta and consists of the duly elected National Officers and National Delegates. The National Officers are deemed the Executive Council, and have the authority to administer the affairs of the Fraternity during the interim between Biennial National Chapter Meetings. Phi Chi Theta is a member of and affiliated with the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Professional Fraternity Association (PFA), and the College Fraternity Editors Association (CFEA).
