Eighty students from the C. T. Bauer College of Business joined an international honor society widely regarded as “the best in business” during an induction ceremony in April.

The college held an event to welcome new members to Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society serving business programs that have been certified by the Association to Advance College Schools of Business (AACSB). Bauer College’s chapter of the organization celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.

Being inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive. Founded in 1913, the society currently boasts over 750,000 members in over 160 countries. In order to be eligible for induction, students must be second-semester sophomores, juniors or seniors in the upper 10 percent of their class, or master’s students in the top 20 percent of their class. All doctoral students are eligible to join.

“Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma demonstrates academic excellence and exemplifies a commitment to high principles and superior achievement,” Associate Dean for Student Affairs Richard Scamell said.

He added: “Because of its stature as the only honor society recognized by the AACSB, corporate recruiters seek individuals who have been elected into membership in Beta Gamma Sigma. In addition, long after graduation, membership in Beta Gamma Sigma provides benefits to its members during their personal and professional lives.”
