About Us

The Association for Research in Business Education
(ARBE) is a national graduate honorary society for professionals who support and promote scholarship, leadership, and cooperation toward the advancement of education for and about business. It was established in 1936 at New York University with the name of Delta Pi Epsilon (DPE). 

As of January 1, 2012, DPE became the Association for Research in Business Education - Delta Pi Epsilon (ARBE-DPE), an affiliate of the National Business Education Association (NBEA). DPE chapters are no longer a part of the official DPE structure. In April of 2015, ARBE-DPE became ARBE.

ARBE is founded on a shared mission to improve the teaching of business through the engagement in scientific research, the development of leadership skills, and the advancement of the profession, providing members with team-building and networking opportunities. Members advance quality education and refine pedagogy through research and instructional development activities.

In 2011, ARBE celebrated its 75th Anniversary of existence! A video was created as part of this anniversary celebration.
