The International Honor Society Recognizing Business Excellence

Beta Gamma Sigma is the honor society for students enrolled in business and management programs accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Stonehill's chapter has earned highest honors status, which is the highest distinction possible for BGS chapters.

Election to lifetime membership in Beta Gama Sigma is the highest honor a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International.

Students, based on high academic achievement, and tenured business school faculty members are the only ones eligible for membership in the Society. With more than 580,000 lifetime members worldwide, the Society’s membership comprises the brightest and best of the world’s business leaders.

Beta Gamma Sigma membership provides recognition for a lifetime. With 31 alumni chapters in major metropolitan areas across the United States and Hong Kong, the BGS CareerCentral job board, and the on-line membership community, those recognized for their academic achievements at Stonehill College can continue an active relationship with Beta Gamma Sigma long after graduation.

This lifelong commitment to its members’ academic and professional success is defined in the Society’s mission: 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.

Second semester junior and senior students ranking in the top 10 percent of their class are eligible for an invitation to join the Stonehill chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma. Qualified students are invited to join early in spring semester.
