The Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) chapter of Brandeis International Business School (IBS), established just this year, recently nominated 52 students to become a part of the exclusive business honor society. BGS is affiliated with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the accrediting body for the top business school programs around the world. 

Founded in 1913 through a merger of business honor societies at the University of Wisconsin, the University of Illinois and the University of California, BGS is an organization that recognizes academic excellence in the study of business. BGS comprises over 590 chapters and more than 830,000 members, all of whom have access to a global alumni network that includes over 190 countries and territories.

“We’re particularly proud of the academic achievements and talents of our inaugural group of nominees,” said Katy Graddy, senior associate dean of Brandeis IBS. Graddy serves as the school’s advisor to BGS.

The primary goal of BGS is to encourage academic achievement. The society does so through celebrating academic excellence and professionalism, developing members as leaders and connecting them into networks across the globe.

To become members, students must be nominated by their college or university after meeting certain criteria. Eligible students include juniors and seniors in the upper 10% of their class and master’s students in the top 20% of their class.

Students must also be of “good moral character,” and once they become members, they should “conscientiously seek to recognize, to uphold, and to encourage that which is ethical and that which is just.”
