The international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business reserves the designation for college campuses "where academic excellence is valued."
The Elon chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma has been recognized by the international honor society’s central office as a High Honors Chapter for the 2014-15 academic year.
“This status is indicative of a campus where academic excellence is valued and where the faculty officers of the chapter work diligently to enhance Beta Gamma Sigma’s stature on campus,” said Amber Nicholson, director of collegiate and alumni relations at Beta Gamma Sigma.
Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.
During the 2014-15 academic year, Elon’s chapter inducted 40 undergraduate students and seven MBA candidates, presented the Professor of the Year award to Associate Professor Jen Platania in the Department of Economics, and hosted the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business’ annual ethics presentation, which was given by Mike Gannaway, the Love School of Business executive-in-residence.
