Why Hire BGS

Beta Gamma Sigma students and alumni represent the highest standards of achievement for business school programs worldwide.


Our members are in the top 10% undergraduate and top 20% graduate programs in the top 5% of business schools accredited by AACSB – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. To put that in perspective, there are more than 16,000 business schools around the world, but only 785 have passed the rigorous accreditation process to become an AACSB school.


As the only business honor society for AACSB schools, Beta Gamma Sigma provides access to a global talent pool of students and alumni members who are academic achievers, highly skilled leaders, better prepared for success, and more desirable to employers than other candidates.
