Membership Guidelines

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest international recognition you can receive. Of the 1,400 U.S. institutions with degree programs in business, less than 380 are accredited by AACSB International and have chapters of Beta Gamma Sigma.

To be eligible for membership, the academic ranking of those being considered must place them in the upper seven percent of the junior class, upper ten percent of the senior class, or upper twenty percent of the graduating master's class. While almost 300,000 students receive bachelor's or master's degrees in business in the U.S. each year, only about 19,000 students are elected to membership in Beta Gamma Sigma.

There is no application form for this prestigious honor. Just keep doing what you are doing well and you may be invited to join!
