Phi Chi Theta is a Co-Ed Professional Business Fraternity that welcomes all Business, Economics, Human Resource Management, and Computer Science majors and minors. We pride ourselves on bringing a new kind of fraternity to Rutgers centered on brotherhood, service, and professionalism.

Since our fraternity’s inception, we have grown and thrived at Rutgers. Professionally, our brothers continue to receive internships and full-time offers from Fortune 500 companies such as Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Amazon, Unilever, Deutsche Bank, the Big Four, and many more. We also have a strong commitment to community service with active participation in Dance Marathon, Scarlet Day of Service, Alternative Breaks, and more. Apart from a great professional and academic network, Phi Chi Theta also provides an on-campus family and brotherhood that extends well beyond graduation.
