February 2, 2017

FBLA-PBL began on February 3, 1942 in Johnson City, TN.  In the beginning, it was known strictly as Future Business Leaders of America.  It has always been a joint organization of high school and college leaders.  In 1957, the Greek letter designation of Phi Beta Lambda was given to the college division.

During a job interview, you can point to the leadership positions you held for the largest collegiate business student organization in the world. At the same time, you can discuss the academic competitions you entered and how you fared against the very best students in the nation.

Phi Beta Lambda is the ideal way to sharpen your business skills and apply your classroom knowledge to real-world scenarios.
