Beta Gamma Sigma
Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is The International Business Honor Society. BGS honors top-performing students from around the world in business schools accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Our members are from the top 10% of undergraduate students, top 20% of graduate students and doctoral candidates that have successfully defended their dissertations at an AACSB-accredited business school.
BGS members go on to serve in critical leadership roles in corporate, entrepreneurial, government, nonprofit, and academic sectors. Members currently reside in all 50 U. S. states and more than 190 countries. Notable members include Nobel Prize winners, Olympians, inventors, CEOs of major global companies and nonprofit organizations, deans of the top business schools, and others who are making the world a better place at all levels of contribution through social enterprise, service and leadership.
Our Beta Gamma Sigma chapter earned recognition from the Beta Gamma Sigma International Business Honor Society as a Highest Honors Chapter for the 2021-2022 academic year, which is the highest distinction possible for BGS chapters.
To celebrate this achievement, our chapter will be recognized at Beta Gamma Sigma events, social media, and publications such as the recognition of excellence program distributed to business school deans from around the world at AACSB's International Conference & Meeting, additional AACSB events including conferences and seminars held throughout the year.
Highest Honors status means our chapter is eligible to be considered for the outstanding chapter of the year award.
On November 15, 2022, Entrepreneurship Day, the UWF chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma read children’s books to preschool children in the UWF Educational Research Center for Child Development. As a business honor society, the goal of the Beta Gamma Sigma service project was to introduce to children business themes that included entrepreneurship, teamwork, and the supply chain. Beta Gama Sigma Vice President of Service Nicholas Jarrett organized the project. Three Beta Gamma Sigma members participated in the event.
