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.
The Mission of the International Honor Society Beta Gamma Sigma is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, to cultivate and celebrate leadership and professional excellence, to advance the values of the Society, and to serve its lifelong members.
Founded in 1913, Beta Gamma Sigma has grown to become the world’s first international honor society. Currently, BGS has more than 500 collegiate chapters on six continents (Pforzheim University is one of them, Prof. Wentzel being the Chapter Advisor), and Society members reside in more than 160 countries around the globe. By accepting the invitation to join Beta Gamma Sigma, you will become part of the world’s largest network of business school alumni.
BGS members are considered the “best of the best” in business. As the highest honor attainable at an AACSB accredited school of business, Beta Gamma Sigma membership is not only a symbol of high achievement, but also a beacon of things to come. The best predictor of future success is past achievement, and membership in BGS is a great way to show potential employers you have what it takes to perform at the highest levels.
