Beta Gamma Sigma
The highest recognition a business student can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.
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.
AACSB International is the highest standard of accreditation a business school can receive, so membership in BGS signifies that you are the "cream of the crop" of a top institution.
The mission of Beta Gamma Sigma is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, to foster personal and professional excellence, to advance the values of the society and to serve its lifelong members.
In order to be eligible for nomination, juniors and seniors must finish in the top 10% of the class based on overall grade point average at the end of the winter quarter. The approximate GPA cutoff is a 3.6. Eligible students are notified with an invitation to BGS in early April.
