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. Each spring, LMU's College of Business Administration inducts a new class of members into Beta Gamma Sigma.
Founded as a national organization in 1913, Beta Gamma Sigma was a merger of three separate societies established to honor academic achievement in business at the University of Wisconsin, University of Illinois and University of California. As a truly global honor society in business and management, members of Beta Gamma Sigma today represent employees at more than 460,000 companies worldwide.
Mission and Objectives
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.
The society's mission is supported by four objectives:
- Encourage and honor academic achievement by students of business and management through chapters in business programs accredited by AACSB International
- Develop Beta Gamma Sigma members as student and professional leaders, and celebrate continuing leadership and excellence
- Foster in Beta Gamma Sigma members an enduring commitment to the founding principles and values of the Society: honor and integrity, pursuit of wisdom, earnestness, and service
- Connect Beta Gamma Sigma student and alumni members to each other and to opportunities in their professional lives
