Beta Gamma Sigma

What is BGS?

Beta Gamma Sigma

Beta Gamma Sigma is the global honour society of AACSB International. The Telfer School of Management was approved as the site of a Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter in the summer of 2004.

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma provides lifelong recognition for students of business and management in schools accredited by AACSB International. It is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a program accredited by AACSB International.

Beta Gamma Sigma has identified the following as its mission and objectives:

Mission

The Mission of the International Honor Society Beta Gamma Sigma is 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.

Objectives

The mission is supported by the five objectives of Beta Gamma Sigma:

  1. Encourage and honor high academic achievement by students of business and management through chapters in business programs accredited by AACSB International.

  3. Support the advancement of business thought and practice to encourage lifelong learning.
  4. Enhance the value of Beta Gamma Sigma for students and alumni members in their professional lives.
  5. Advance the visibility and reputation of Beta Gamma Sigma.
