Student Activities

In addition to numerous curriculum-related events and activities, Massey students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of student organizations such as the Massey Graduate Council, Massey Golf Network, Massey Milers Club (running), Beta Alpha Psi (national accounting honorary), Beta Gamma Sigma (national business honorary) and a host of volunteer service opportunities (e.g., Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Martha O'Bryan Center).

Beta Alpha Psi

Beta Alpha Psi is an international honorary organization for undergraduate and graduate accounting, finance and information systems majors. Membership in the Beta Alpha Psi honor society provides opportunities for continued growth in your chosen field. Members are required to be active participants. Belmont's chapter expects each member or pledge to average 10 hours of participation per semester (measured in 50 minute increments). Of those 10 hours, a minimum of 3 hours should be in professional activities (attending speaker events or training) and a minimum of 3 hours should be in service activities. Both speakers and service opportunities are designed to enhance your education and experience. Service activities may include tutoring, working in the accounting clinic, participating in the IRS program assisting with tax return preparation (VITA) or participating in community service.

Career Fairs and Networking

Career Fairs and networking opportunities are abundant on and off campus. The Career Development Center hosts periodic seminars to provide Massey students with the career knowledge needed to gain workplace advantages. The Massey School sponsors career fairs throughout the year, bringing significant employers from all industries. Locations include on-campus at the Curb Event Center and Massey Business Center, as well as off-campus at facilities such as the Tennessee State Fairgrounds and Nashville Convention Center. Networking events, such as Third Thursday, are hosted by the Career Development Center. Our alumni and current student associations also partner to organize networking events.

CFA Research Challenge

The CFA Research Challenge is coordinated through the CFA Institute, a global organization whose goal is to set an industry standard of excellence. The CFA Challenge is a competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and training in financial analysis.
