Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International. With the expansion of AACSB accreditation internationally, membership is no longer limited to those who have studied in the U.S. or Canada.
To be eligible for membership, a student must rank in the upper 10 percent of the junior class and senior class, or upper 20 percent of the graduating master’s class.
Beta signifies honor. Honor is personal integrity and excellence of character. It is an enduring quality found in all persons who deserve to lead others.
Gamma signifies wisdom. Wisdom is knowledge tested by experience and tempered by discerning judgment. It abhors prejudice; it insists upon freedom of thought and expression.
Sigma signifies earnestness. Earnestness is enthusiasm measured by achievement, disciplined by reason and ennobled by sincerity. It is that dynamic quality which is essential for all great achievement.
Mission of the Society
The mission of Beta Gamma Sigma is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business and personal and professional excellence in the practice of business.
