The University of Connecticut chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society for business programs accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), will conduct its annual induction ceremony this year on April 26, 2013.
Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is highly selective and confers recognition for excellent academic performance by the nation’s oldest and most widely known business student association. Only the top 10% of sixth semester juniors and top 10% of seniors are eligible to join. Being invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma is a sign of excellence. Receiving a BGS Scholarship in addition indicates that a student has earned the right to be considered as best of the best at one of the world’s finest business schools.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of Beta Gamma Sigma. To commemorate the occasion and in keeping with its mission of recognizing and encouraging academic excellence, Beta Gamma Sigma is awarding $1,000 scholarships to two University of Connecticut School of Business students for their superior performances in the study of business. The recipients will be announced at the April 26, 2013 ceremony.
Beta Gamma Sigma membership provides recognition for a lifetime. This lifelong commitment to its members’ academic and professional success is defined in the the Society’s mission: to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, to foster personal and professional excellence, to advance the values of the Society, and to serve its lifelong members.
With collegiate chapters on five continents, Beta Gamma Sigma today is truly an international society that remains dedicated to recognizing the most outstanding students of business and management. The University of Connecticut chapter was established in 1959.
