Beta Gamma Sigma Business Honor Society

At the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and the College of Business Administration, we celebrate our outstanding students and faculty who have received the special honor of induction into Beta Gamma Sigma. Beta Gamma Sigma is an International Honor Society for business students that encourages and honors outstanding academic achievement in business education. Induction into the society is considered the highest level of distinction awarded to students in accredited business schools; only the most exceptional students are invited to join. Beta Gamma Sigma strives to promote among its members a lasting commitment to the values of Beta, Gamma, and Sigma: honor, the pursuit of wisdom, and earnestness.

Beta Gamma Sigma was formed in 1913 by business students in Madison, Wisconsin. Just seven years later, the University of Pittsburgh chapter was established, making it one of the oldest collegiate chapters in existence today. Presently, the society is composed of 468 collegiate and 16 alumni chapters. After 94 years and with nearly 600,000 members inducted worldwide, Beta Gamma Sigma remains the world's largest society of business school alumni.
