Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society exclusively serving business programs accredited by AACSB International. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive. There are nearly 600 BGS chapters, operating in almost 75% of AACSB-accredited business schools. For over a century, these two organizations have worked side-by-side to advance the next generation of business leaders through academic and professional excellence.

With a shared emphasis on global networking, Beta Gamma Sigma and AACSB have facilitated connections intended to foster the AACSB mission of engagement, accelerating innovation, and amplifying impact in business education. The BGS name is also recognized globally by leading corporate recruiters as an indicator of business acumen and leadership.

BGS members are committed to making a difference in business and beyond. And BGS is committed to offering our members programs, services, benefits, and opportunities for both professional and personal development that deliver a lifetime of value.

Beta Gamma Sigma encourages and honors academic achievement in the study of business by cultivating and celebrating leadership and professional excellence, by advancing the values of the Society, and by serving its lifelong members.

Of AACSB-accredited business school students, only 10% are invited into membership as undergraduates, some as early as sophomore year.

The top 20% of students enrolled in MBA and other graduate business programs are also invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma.

All doctoral candidates are eligible to join once program requirements have been completed.
