As a business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi is deeply committed to the professional development of its members.

Throughout the year, the Alpha chapter also hosts multiple open speaker events and professional workshops for the mutual advancement of the Stern community.

Every year, Delta Sigma Pi invites speakers from top firms from across the world to come in and share with students their career experiences and industry expertise. Last year, notable events included representatives from Boston Consulting Group, Ernst & Young, Microsoft, Credit Suisse, Veritas Prep, and Citigroup. As DSP is committed to leveraging the strength of its alumni network, many speakers are often alumni. Our most recent alumni panel, which featured speakers ranging from Vice President in Investment Banking to Actuarial Science consultant, helped further expose members' to different industries and career paths.
Delta Sigma Pi believes that professional success can be found in any industry. Thus, in addition to preparing students for traditional careers, our chapter is dedicated to seeking out speakers that hail from a diverse range of industries, who are capable of inspiring students to determine their own measure of success. These type of events often stand out amongst the clutter of professional events held at NYU. This spring, for example, our event featuring t-shirt entrepreneur Johnny Cupcakes received widespread attention at NYU and attracted over 150 attendees interested in learning about the power of branding and building a company.
Delta Sigma Pi hosts professional workshops throughout the year in order to hone members' soft skills as well as hard skills. Most recently, we welcomed Stanley Zareff, Vice President of Corporate Communication at Credit Suisse, who helped members polish their networking and communication skills. In the past year, other notable events include an Interviewing Strategies session with NYU Stern professor Karen White, as well as a continuation of our seminar on dressing professionally, led by Ronald Ferguson, head chaperone of Brooks' Brothers' largest store in NYC.
Perhaps the most important resource that members of Delta Sigma Pi have is each other. In order to help younger classes attain the skills and resources needed to succeed both personally and professionally, Delta Sigma Pi has implemented multiple efforts, including mentorship programs, internal recruiting training, mock interviews, as well as group study breaks and resume workshops. Career and internship opportunities are regularly sent through the DSP list serv, and all members have access to exclusive professional content through the internal website.
Delta Sigma Pi is committed to giving members hands-on exposure to different industries. Each year, our chapter hosts several corporate tours that allows members to actually see the workplace and understand what goes on in a typical day at the firm. Last year, not only did members get the chance to tour the New York Federal Reserve with a representative from the Fed, but they also visited the office of PricewaterhouseCoopers and got to hear from a panel of professionals on what it's like to work at a well-known Big 4 accounting firm.
LEAD, or Leadership and Excellence Academics for Deltasigs, is an opportunity for all Deltasigs to come together to further their leadership skills and forge closer fraternal relationships. Offered year-round by Delta Sigma Pi, these weekend-long conferences include workshops, training sessions, and social activities that not only encourage inter-chapter bonding, but also serve to foster professional and personal development.
