Beta Gamma Sigma
Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International. The Mission of Beta Gamma Sigma is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, to foster personal and professional excellence, to advance the values of the Society, and to serve its lifelong members.
BGS recognizes a student’s conviction towards high principles and outstanding achievement. Students qualified for membership rank in the top 10% of their class. Once inducted, a lifetime member joins a network of highly renowned business leaders dedicated to high ethical principles and business success.
The BGS chapter at Siena holds a formal induction ceremony every Spring for new members. Friends and family accompany the new members as they receive their graduation stoles. The chapter annually awards a $1,000 academic scholarship to one student member who has exhibited outstanding performance. To recognize outstanding achievement at the faculty level, student members annually select a Beta Gamma Sigma Professor of the Year.
