Mu Kappa Tau National Marketing Honor Society was founded in 1966 by members of Pi Sigma Epsilon, the National, Professional Fraternity in Marketing, Sales Management and Selling. It was through commitment to the advancement of study in the field of Marketing and the developing need for recognition of academic excellence within the Marketing discipline that Mu Kappa Tau was created. Today, Mu Kappa Tau remains the only National Marketing Honor Society to offer its members both national recognition and campus chapter affiliation. It remains the only National Marketing Honor Society to be recognized by the Association of College Honor Societies. Mu Kappa Tau exists to recognize academic excellence and to encourage individuals seeking a life-long commitment to an exceptional standard of ethics and achievement within the marketing milieu.
