Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) is an honorary organization for financial information students and professionals.

Sponsored by Deloitte LLP, the competition was focused on making improvements at the chapter level. UT finished ahead of seven other teams, including from California State University, Sacramento, The University of Notre Dame and The University of Denver. The UT team included Brent Caramanica, Stefan Cox, Lucie Matulikova and Yafeng Zhang.

Further, UT was one of eight teams that won the Gold Challenge Competition, sponsored by KPMG, which let BAP students put their multimedia skills to use by creating a 5-minute video that explains and/or demonstrates why their chapter deserves the award or why a top student would want to become part of the BAP organization.

The UT team was accompanied to the conference by its faculty advisor of eight years, Mary Keener, associate professor of accounting.
