On April 30, more than 150 students, faculty and family members celebrated the inauguration of the Delta Mu chapter of the Alpha Iota Delta, the national honor society of the decision sciences and computer information systems.
Eleven UDM undergraduate students, 33 graduate students, and seven faculty members were initiated at the inaugural ceremony, which was held at UDM. College of Business Administration Dean Bahman Mirshab, and guest speaker Richard P. Blotner, vice president of North American Operations for the Oracle Corporation, were also initiated.
“It is an honor to have been involved with the chartering of the Alpha Iota Delta Delta Mu chapter,” states UDM Professor of Business Gregory W. Ulferts, the chapter sponsor and founding member of the Decision Sciences Institute. “The chapter represents an ongoing opportunity to recognize the academic achievements of students in decision sciences and computer information systems.”
The Delta Mu chapter strives to confer distinction for academic excellence
in the decision sciences and computer information systems. It promotes
the infusion of the functional and behavioral areas of administration
with the tools, concepts, and methodologies of the decision sciences and
computer information systems; and promotes professional fellowship among
students, faculty, and administrators who share a common interest in the
development of decision sciences and computer information systems.
