Pi Sigma Epsilon
Pi Sigma Epsilon
Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE) is the only national co-ed professional fraternity for sales, marketing, and sales management. We currently have over 55 chapters nation-wide and, with the recent rapid expansion in sales programs around the country, we are expanding fast. PSE offers students a national affiliation that has benefits far beyond what a local group would be able to take advantage of by itself. Through PSE, students can gain real world experience while networking with other students and companies from around the country. It is with our corporate partners that we give the biggest advantage. Not only do our partners support students financially through support of national programming and many scholarships, but they provide insight and updates on the latest trends in the industries. Best of all, they hire our members!!
The Epsilon Rho Chapter of Pi Sigma Epsilon is a co-ed business-oriented organization and operates like a small business and carries out an array of marketing, sales and community service projects. Although we label ourselves as a Professional Business Fraternity, we are open to all majors, from Accounting to Architecture and Sales to Social Work. Due to our members’ various backgrounds and current collegiate concentrations, Epsilon Rho continues to excel in the ever-changing business world. Our goals as an organization is to form life-long relationships and to develop skills that will benefit our members through their future careers.
With your membership in Pi Sigma Epsilon not only do you receive a "Business Advantage for Life", you receive additional benefits and discounts from our corporate partners. Click on the link to discover what we have to offer!
The Prospective Membership Process is the formal term for the requirements that all students wishing to become members must go through. Such a student is a prospective member, not a pledge, for their semester of going through the process. We generally conduct interviews for all interested students after holding two informational sessions. A class size of 15-20 is selected and the students then become prospective members. Initiation is held after 8-10 weeks of weekly meetings, sales/marketing projects, events with the brothers and sisters, a scavenger hunt, and other enjoyable social events.
* Priority is granted to those who receive a personal invitation from a brother or sister. We encourage all students to come see why PSE is THE BEST DECISION YOU HAVEN’T MADE YET!

How much of my time will Epsilon Rho require?
Generally, PSE and all related events requires approximately 4-7 hours per week. However, it is worth noting that you get out what you put into the organization.
What if I cannot make all or even one of the recruitment events and still wish to join?
If you cannot make a recruitment event and wish to join, you must contact Kaylyn Hill, our VP of Human Resources, at email@example.com to make interview arrangements. She is happy to accommodate interested students.
Will I be required to pay the joining fee right after the First Round Interviews?
No. There is a grace period of 1-2 weeks in which we allow prospective members to finalize their decision to join PSE.
Do I have to be a business major to be a member of PSE?
No, we are open to any major. PSE is designed to give all students practical marketing, sales, communication and business experience. Our chapter has members from multiple majors ranging from Finance to Nursing to Sociology.
When should I try and join PSE?
As soon as possible. Employers and current Epsilon Rho members view early involvement as a sign of initiative. Recruitment is held at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters.
What types of leadership opportunities are available in PSE?
There are numerous opportunities and all members are encouraged to take on leadership roles. The large number of projects that we do each semester enables many members to become project managers and directors in their careers. The skills, expertise, and knowledge you gain through leadership in PSE remain with you for life.
How will PSE help me get a job?
PSE offers professional contacts, a strong alumni base, and practical hands-on experience. We are very much like a small business with the types of projects we take on with professional clients. These projects are designed to help students gain insight into what different career paths offer and entail. Employers recognize the contributions and work ethic of members of Pi Sigma Epsilon and are rewarded throughout their lives.
