Each spring, new members are inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma national business honor society at Susquehanna. To be eligible to join, students must rank in the top 10 percent of theri class and display good moral character.
“It is the highest academic honor that we can give in the business school, and students can be proud of this award for the remainder of their life,” explains chapter advisor Rick Davis, professor of accounting.
This summer the members received news that made them prouder yet. The Susquehanna chapter 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.
