Beta Gamma Sigma was founded in 1913 and was the first national honor society in business. Today, it is an international honor society that provides the highest recognition an undergraduate or graduate business student at an AACSB accredited institution can receive. The mission of Beta Gamma Sigma is to encourage and honor the academic achievement of students, foster personal and professional excellence, and serve its lifelong members.
