Beta Gamma Sigma is the honor society for students enrolled in business and management programs accredited by AACSB International. Election to lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest honor a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International. Students, based on high academic achievement, and tenured business school faculty members are the only ones eligible for membership in the society. With more than 500,000 members worldwide, the society’s membership comprises the brightest and best of the world’s business leaders.
In May an annual induction ceremony, reception, and dinner takes place the evening before graduation. At this dinner the new inductees are sworn in, a chapter honoree is asked to address the attendants, awards for high academic achievement are announced, and the selections for the faculty awards in teaching and research, and service are announced.
