Susquehanna University's chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma received Highest Honors status among all chapters in the international business school honor society. The distinction is reserved for only the top 10 percent of chapters internationally.
"We are honored by this recognition from Beta Gamma Sigma's national organization," said Rick Davis, professor of accounting and faculty adviser of Susquehanna's Beta Gamma Sigma chapter. "For our students, it's confirmation that they are among the best and the brightest, both in the nation and around the world."
As a Highest Honors chapter, Susquehanna has earned one Honor Roll Scholarship that covers the cost of one student registration, including hotel accommodations, for the 2017 Global Leadership Summit, held in November in Orlando, Fla.
Beta Gamma Sigma chapters are available only to business schools with AACSB accreditation, a hallmark of excellence earned by less than 5 percent of the world's business schools and even fewer undergraduate-only liberal arts and sciences universities.
Susquehanna's chapter, established in 1994, nominates for membership only the top 10 percent of Sigmund Weis School of Business juniors. All of those nominated accept admission to the chapter.
The benefits of lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma are increased professional networking opportunities and scholarship opportunities, as well as career and graduate school resources. The Susquehanna chapter also sends a contingent of six students to Beta Gamma Sigma's Global Leadership Summit.
