Be Proud to be a PSE Parent
You’re making the right decision by wanting to learn more about your son or daughter’s involvement in PSE. Please take a few minutes to learn more about the benefits PSE provides.
What is Pi Sigma Epsilon? PSE is the only national, professional, fraternity for men and women in the fields of sales, marketing and management. While these business fields are our focus, we are open to ALL majors. PSE gives its members the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, participate in conferences both regionally and nationally, and network with top executives through PSE’s corporate partners. Currently we have over 60 active chapters at Universities across the United States.
While we have a greek name, we are a professional fraternal organization versus a social fraternity. We adhere to strict rules against hazing, drinking and harassment, as outlined in our Risk Management Policy. You can read our policy here.
How will my son or daughter benefit from being in PSE? There is a wide range of opportunities that a PSE student has both during and after college. Each PSE chapter is run similar to a small business, enabling students to develop and utilize their unique skills. PSE gives students excellent learning opportunities. Members apply the skills they learn in the classroom by doing chapter sales and marketing projects and community service activities.
- SCHOLARSHIPS! Your son or daughter can apply for a scholarship during their time in PSE. Each year at the National Convention, PSE gives away approximately $50,000 in scholarships! For a parent, this is really exciting! The check is made out to the student’s University to defray the cost of the student's education.
- Experience and Leadership Skills During their time in PSE, your son or daughter will evolve into a true leader. Each chapter has a multitude of leadership opportunities, whether it is the project manager for one of the sales and marketing projects, or as a member of the executive board within the chapter. PSE HQ provides opportunities for additional leadership training.
- Competitions PSE offers the opportunity to participate locally and nationally in several competitions, while learning new skills. For example, the Pro-Am Sell-A-Thon pairs students with real sales professionals that coach and teach them current sales concepts. The Pro-Am also allows students to learn about and sell a product in a professional setting.
- Awards PSE also offers an awards competition each year at the national convention. Chapters compete in several award categories, including: Top Chapter, Top Sales Project, Top Service Project, and many more. There are also individual award competitions, including Top PSE Salesperson, Top Project Manager and Whan Challenger (for excellent leadership skills). These awards offer an exceptional opportunity for students and chapters to showcase their accomplishments from the previous year.
- Career Opportunities PSE helps prepare students for life after college in many ways. Our national website has sections available to students searching for jobs, including in PSE’s job board and resume posting. These areas allow PSE members exclusive access to view positions and to post their resume, viewable to over 50 employers nationwide, including several Fortune 500 companies! You will notice that PSE has partnerships with several national corporations. PSE members benefit from these relationships year round by receiving support, guest speakers, project ideas, learning opportunities, internships and great jobs!
