Beta Gamma Sigma Celebrates a Century of Excellence

02/18/2013

Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, is celebrating its Centennial on throughout the month of February.  The society was founded on February 19, 1913.

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can attain in a business program accredited by AACSB International. Only business schools accredited by AACSB International are allowed to form a Beta Gamma Sigma chapter and only the top students at such schools are invited to become members.

To qualify for membership, a student’s academic ranking must place them in the upper 10% of the junior class, or the upper 10% of the senior class, or the upper 20% of the graduating master’s class. The University of Akron’s Kappa of Ohio chapter also requires candidates to satisfy other course completion requirements.

Kappa of Ohio will conduct its induction ceremony at a banquet on April 12, 2013.  Students who qualify for induction will be notified during the week of March 4.
