Prospective Chapters

We invite all AACSB accredited business schools to establish a Beta Gamma Sigma chapter on their campus.  Each Chapter awards lifetime membership to their outstanding scholars.  Here’s a preview of how your institution and students will benefit from Beta Gamma Sigma membership.

Honor Your Top Business Students

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student in a program accredited by AACSB International can receive anywhere in the world.  Therefore, Beta Gamma Sigma members are considered the “Best in Business.”

Connect Your Students to a Global Network  

The International Honor Society Beta Gamma Sigma encompasses:

  • Over 830,000 lifetime Beta Gamma Sigma members in all 50 states and 190 countries.
  • Over 590 collegiate chapters, in over 32 countries and territories.
  • 30 Alumni Chapters – 9 are outside the U.S. – which provide networking, speaker events, and other opportunities for local BGS members.  Also over 15 active alumni networks. 

Provide Leadership Opportunities to Your Students

Students can be elected to student officer positions and plan Beta Gamma Sigma events on campus.  BGS members have the opportunity to attend the Global Leadership Summit which brings together students from around the globe to improve their leadership skills.  Members can also take advantage of networking opportunities, career assistance, and many discounts.  See more benefits available to Beta Gamma Sigma members.
