There is no higher honor for students of business than to graduate Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS). The honor society was founded as a national organization in 1913. Selection into BGS not only recognizes academic achievement, but also expresses confidence in the students’ abilities and promise to become outstanding business leaders in the future. Membership in BGS is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive and comprises the brightest and best of business leaders including CEOs, CFOs, presidents, and other management personnel at the world’s largest companies; deans, faculty members and professional staff at the world's most prestigious colleges and universities; and the students and entry-level professionals who have shown they have what it takes to fill these positions in the future.
Benefits to members include: Lifetime Recognition for Outstanding Academic Achievement, Student Leadership Forum, Student Scholarship Program, and an Alumni Network. The BGS website and newsletter keep members informed of the Society's activities and provide lifelong learning opportunities for the Society's membership through articles addressing current business topics.
The Student Investment Fund (and the Financial Markets Lab) provides students with the experiential opportunity to research and analyze listed equities to place in the Managed portfolio. Students gain skills sought after by employers in areas of presentation, analytics, research, teamwork, and communication.
