Establishing A New Chapter


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.

It only takes 3 initial steps to establish a Beta Gamma Sigma chapter on your campus:

  1. Receive AACSB accreditation
  2. Submit a letter of intent signed by the Dean on University Letterhead
  3. Appoint/identify Chapter Advisor(s)

After the 3 initial steps are complete you'll want to plan the following for a successful invitation process:
  1. Chapter Advisor works to identify eligible students, faculty, and administration
  2. Invite or tap new members
    • Encourage invitees to accept membership
  3. Plan for the recognition ceremony
    • Work with BGS office staff to identify Installing Officer
    • Receive certificates and pins for new members
    • Host a recognition ceremony to honor new members
