Beta Gamma Sigma, highest honors, fraternityThe College of Business’ international student honor society, Beta Gamma Sigma, has been recognized as a Highest Honors Chapter, the most prestigious level of recognition a chapter can receive.

Beta Gamma Sigma has more than 590 chapters at colleges and universities accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB). Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive. To become eligible, students must rank in the upper 7 percent of the junior class, upper 10 percent of the senior class or upper 20 percent of a master’s class.

Officials from the honor society said being recognized as a Highest Honors Chapter is indicative of a campus where academic excellence is highly valued and where faculty officers of the chapter work diligently to enhance Beta Gamma Sigma’s stature on campus.

“The credit goes to our students’ achievements and involvement in the chapter for it receiving Highest Honors status,” said Sri Sridharan, Management chair and faculty advisor of the Clemson chapter. “Year in and year out, our Beta Gamma Sigma business students put forth an academic effort befitting a high honors organization.”

More than 2,000 students have become lifetime Beta Gamma Sigma members as inductees into the Clemson chapter.
