The Philadelphia University Chapter of the National Business Honor Society, Delta Mu Delta, will hold its annual induction ceremony at the Germantown Cricket Club on Friday, April 21 at 6 p.m.

PhilaU currently has 24 members on campus, and 29 new undergraduate and graduate students will be inducted into the Delta Upsilon chapter of Delta Mu Delta. To be inducted, students must have completed at least half of the program credits, be in the top 20 percent of the class, and have a GPA of 3.7 or better for undergraduates and 3.9 for graduate students.

Geoffrey Cromarty, PhilaU’s vice president for administration and chief operating officer, will welcome the students, parents and faculty and recognize PhilaU’s high-achieving business students. Monica Lam, academic dean of the School of Business Administration, and Ron Kander, executive dean of the Kanbar College of Design, Engineering and Commerce, will congratulate the students after the induction ceremony.

Keynote speaker and PhilaU alumna Ginny Palmieri M’95, vice president of specialty services for Independence Blue Cross, will share how being courageous, transparent and authentic can lead to both success in the corporate world and a happier and fuller life.

“As faculty adviser to Delta Mu Delta, it’s a pleasure to participate in such a celebratory event,” said Susan Christoffersen, associate professor of economics and finance. “These students have a proven track record of scholastic achievement, and they’re going to enter the business world with the talents and knowledge to continue to grow throughout their careers.”
