International business honor society recognizes Clemson chapter
Beta Gamma Sigma, an international honor society that recognizes academic excellence in business studies, has awarded Clemson University’s chapter honors recognition for its commitment to academic excellence and faculty officers’ efforts at enhancing the organization’s local status.
Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive in a business program accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. In order 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.
“This recognition is a testimonial to our students’ achievements in upholding the tradition of academic excellence in Clemson’s business studies,” said Sri Sridharan, Management chair and president and advisor of the Clemson chapter. “Induction into the Clemson chapter is solely based on students’ academic excellence and by invitation only.”
More than 2,000 students have become lifetime Beta Gamma Sigma members as inductees into the Clemson chapter.
In recognizing Clemson’s honors status, the international honor society cited the local chapter’s “hard work at becoming one of the ‘best in the business.’ ‘’
