Mu Beta Lambda Business Fraternity, Inc.
A Letter from the President
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Mu Beta Lambda Business Fraternity Inc. website! My name is Poorvi Mishra, and I am pleased to serve as President of the chapter for the 2022-2023 school year. I joined Mu Beta Lambda my freshman year in Spring 2020. I was drawn to the organization because of the family-like environment and welcoming spirit. In my first semester at Indiana University, I soon realized that finding a community with likeminded individuals was going to be a struggle. Hence, when I was introduced to Mu Beta Lambda, I felt an immediate connection. The intake process taught me many professional valuable lessons and going through it enabled me to make some of great friends. Moreover, having multiple positions in Mu Beta Lambda allowed me to practice my creativity through organizing events and becoming a better leader as the Vice President of Internal Affairs. Outside of my positions, being in smaller, newer organization has given me a chance to make a difference. With the help of the founder Bryce Grimes, we were able to establish a new pillar of Sustainability this year. With the rising issues of climate change, I am glad that our organization can help build more sustainable business leaders. Lastly, this organization has helped me develop personally and professionally by attending workshops, corporate-sponsored events, and collaborating with my fellow Mu’s in exciting projects. I am excited to continue to learn and grow this year and represent our illustrious and growing organization!
Mu Beta Lambda is a revolutionary organization of individuals dedicated to the empowerment of minority professionals. We, as young professionals, utilize our network to create opportunities for the advancement of our members and our community. Mu Beta Lambda, the nation’s first minority-based business fraternity, was founded on February 17, 2012, by nine visionaries, who wanted to bring together diverse, business-savvy students and create an environment for them to excel. Our pillars of Kinship, Diversity & Culture, Professionalism, Scholarship, Community Service and Sustainability form the strong foundation our business fraternity lies on and the principles we hold our members accountable to. From here, we see them go on to on-campus leadership positions, internships, and full-time job offers before graduation. Each year, we are growing as an organization and developing ourselves to be the business leaders of tomorrow, all while positively impacting Indiana University’s campus along the way.
Diversity & Culture
We know firsthand the need for improved acceptance and inclusion of culture and diversity in the business world. Diversity and culture are critically important for all professional endeavors, especially with respect for increasing globalization.
We strive to create a strong bond and support system between the diverse, cultured, and likeminded individuals that make up our organization through events and time spent together.
Professionals and leaders are forever students of their environment. Today, we focus on our academic achievements so that, as we grow into the business leaders of tomorrow, we remain dedicated to scholarship and active learning in our careers.
Professional development is the primary purpose of our organization. We are as dedicated to improving inclusion in professional settings as we are to our own personal development.
We understand that a business is only as good as the community around it. For this reason, we instill a strong commitment to service in our members so that they may continue to practice commitment throughout their professional careers.
An individual is truly exceptional when they care about the environment that provides for them. Being sustainable should be standard of living and we must take active steps to reduce negative externalities.
