Beta Gamma Sigma

International honor society for students with outstanding academic results

Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) 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. 

Since 2016 we host an annual "recognition ceremony" in collaboration with James Madison University.


Lifetime membership is the most significant benefit of Beta Gamma Sigma. With more than 600 collegiate chapters on 6 continents, Beta Gamma Sigma established itself as the biggest and fastest growing organisation of its kind worldwide. 

The member network is a rich source of knowledge for students and alumni. A complete list of additional benefits, e.g. BGS career services, discounts to magazine subscriptions, etc. are available on the Beta Gamma Sigma website.

"What a conference this weekend!" - Pieter Deleye, 2018

"I've had the honor to represent the University of Antwerp on to the Beta Gamma Sigma Global Leadership Summit 2018 and want to thank the BGS team and CEO Chris Carosella for making this such an unforgettable experience.

Furthermore, the speakers all inspired better, more empathic and innovative leadership for all the interesting students present. Special thanks to Alfonzo Alexander, Jennifer Selke & Sameer Somal for sharing their knowledge. You have inspired me the most.

Last but not least, the participants from all over the globe brought all their own experience to the table and I hope to see as many again for any future endeavor."
