Honor Societies

Beta Gamma Sigma

Beta Gamma Sigma is the premier national honor society in business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest national scholastic recognition that a student in business can receive in an undergraduate or graduate program at a school accredited by the AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The first national honor society in business, Beta Gamma Sigma was the result of a merger of three separate societies established to honor academic achievement in business at the University of Wisconsin, University of Illinois, and the University of California. To be eligible for membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, students must rank in the upper 10 percent of their junior class, the upper 10 percent of their senior class, or the upper 20 percent of students graduating from a master's degree program. In addition, Lubin undergraduates must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50. Membership is by invitation only and students are inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma at an Induction Ceremony held on their home campus in late April or May.
