Beta Gamma Sigma is the 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.
Beta Gamma Sigma members have been recognized as the best students of business and management by the faculties at the finest business schools in the world. Members are employed at every level of management at the world's most successful organizations, thrive in their entrepreneurial endeavors, and hold faculty and administrative positions at colleges and universities around the world.
