Mu Kappa Tau, the National Honor Society for Marketers

Founded in 1966 by Pi Sigma Epsilon, the national fraternity in marketing, sales management and selling, Mu Kappa Tau is recognized as the national marketing honor society. Mu Kappa Tau draws together dynamic students, educators and professionals who share high aspirations, mutual interest, and dedication to the marketing field. Mu Kappa Tau invites as members those who have attained academic excellence and/or have made significant contributions to marketing education or the profession.

Eligibility Requirements

Mu Kappa Tau Seal

Similar to most honor societies, membership in Mu Kappa Tau is by invitation from the School of Business marketing faculty. Mu Kappa Tau membership at Rutgers University-Camden is limited to students, majoring or concentrating in Marketing, who meet exceptional academic requirements. Membership invitations are considered for undergraduate Marketing majors with 90 or more credits and MBA Marketing concentrators with 30 or more credits. Invitations are extended to students who have achieved an overall cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25 on a 4.00 scale, a ranking in the top 20% of their class, and outstanding academic achievement in Marketing as determined by the faculty.

Membership Fee

Mu Kappa Tau is a non-profit organization requiring a one-time membership fee. The $40 fee entitles members to life membership in Mu Kappa Tau.

Invitations to Join and Initiation in Mu Kappa Tau

Invitations are extended during the Spring semester. Students who accept the invitation are inducted into Mu Kappa Tau at the Spring Honors Ceremony, hosted by the School of Business-Camden in April. At that time, each Mu Kappa Tau member will be presented with a Certificate of Membership as well as an Honor Cord. This Cord should be worn at graduation to indicate high academic achievement and membership in Mu Kappa Tau. Upon induction through the School of Business ceremony, individuals become official members of the national chapter of Mu Kappa Tau.

The information on this application is for internal use only, for us to match you as well as possible with and executive from among our alumni database.

BLDP Application

The Fall 2021 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by Friday, April 2, 2021. Applications are accepted until all seats are filled. Space is limited, so apply early!

The seminar application process is our gateway for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into BLDP, students will be emailed their acceptance letter plus a special permission number allowing registration for the BLDP seminar.

Requirements

Seminar applications are solicited each semester and require the following:

  1. Completed application form (at the bottom of this page),
  2. Personal essay
  3. Two (2) letters of recommendation (one academic; one other)

Rutgers-Camden students are invited to apply to apply for enrollment in the BLDP seminar. All applicants are expected to meet both of the following selection criteria:  (1) have sophomore standing or above and (2) have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above. First-semester transfer students will be evaluated based on their GPA earned at Rutgers. Students who fail to meet these admission criteria may still be allowed to apply for (and possibly enroll in) the BLDP seminar, but they will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

The director balances evaluations to make final decisions on people accepted for the seminar (up to a maximum of 15-20 each semester).

Students who are admitted to the BDLP are required to adopt the BLDP Code of Conduct. A signed contract is required from each student.

Students may count activities toward “leadership units” that were initiated prior to taking a seminar, as long as those activities occured primarily during their enrollment in their academic program.
