Beta Gamma Sigma

Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.


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.


The Mission is supported by the five Objectives of the Society. These include:

  1. Encourage and honor high academic achievement by students of business and management through chapters in business programs accredited by AACSB International.
  2. Foster in Beta Gamma Sigma members an enduring commitment to the founding principles and values of the Society: honor and integrity, pursuit of wisdom, and earnestness.
  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.

Membership requirements include that a student must be in the top 10% of a bachelors or masters business program and induction at UTM is held each Spring semester. Perspective students are “tapped” a few weeks prior to the induction ceremony and provided with the opportunity to accept the invitation to join.
