Beta Gamma Sigma at Shippensburg University
Sigma is an international honor society that is a product of AACSB
accreditation. The John L. Grove College
of Business is one of only 544 colleges with a Beta Gamma Sigma chapter in the
entire world. As such, being a member of
Beta Gamma Sigma is one of the highest achievements a business student can
make. Being a member of Beta Gamma Sigma
opens doors to the business world through alumni relations programs and service
events held at the university and community.
You never know when the person you’re helping at an event is going to be
your next employer!
Juniors, seniors, and graduate students who meet the
academic requirements of Beta Gamma Sigma, you will be invited to join. You are required to pay a one-time fee, and
then you are a BGS member for life.
There are many benefits, such as receiving discounts from various
companies, GMAT exemptions, and access to alumni networks.
To receive an invitation, for undergraduates, you must be in
the top 10% of your class; for the graduate level, the top 20%. You will be contacted by the Dean’s office
after Spring Break. You might also be
tapped in class to join this prestigious organization. An induction ceremony is held every Spring.
