Phi Beta Lambda is a post-secondary organization that strives to provide students with opportunities to improve their skills as both students and future leaders. Clubs are organized on college campuses and focus on a variety of things from career development, service and student activities. Typically, students are pursuing some kind of education and/or professional goal in business, but it is not a requirement for membership. Phi Beta Lambda is the collegiate level of Future Business Leaders of America, which serves the same purpose for high school students.
