According to the Arkansas Tech University College of Business website, membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is an honor reserved for the top business students and business faculty members at universities and colleges that have been accredited by AACSB International.
Beta Gamma Sigma traces its roots back to the founding of an honor society for business students at the University of Wisconsin in 1907.
Since then, the honor society has inducted 650,000 members. Today, Beta Gamma Sigma members reside in all 50 states and in 160 countries. The organization is active on 500 campuses around the globe.
