Beta Gamma Sigma

We are the "best in business"

Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is an international honor society recognizing the outstanding academic achievements of students enrolled in collegiate business and management programs accredited by AACSB International. Invitation for membership is sent out in the Spring.

Beta Gamma Sigma logoOnly the top 5 percent of business programs worldwide are privileged to host a chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, and only the top 10 percent of juniors and seniors and top 20 percent of Master’s candidates are invited to join each year. Beta Gamma Sigma membership signals excellence to colleagues and potential employers, and marks a person as one of the top students at the Lutgert College of Business.
