Local Beta Gamma Sigma chapter recognized

November 08, 2011

Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), an international business honor society, has recognized the Penn State Harrisburg chapter as an Exemplary Chapter for the 2010-11 year.

BGS invites the top 10 percent of juniors and seniors and top 20 percent of graduate students in business programs to join its ranks. Chapters in which more than 70 percent of nominees accept membership into the society are named as “exemplary chapters.” Established in 2000, the Penn State Harrisburg chapter was the only Pennsylvania college chapter and one of 47 nationwide to receive the recognition.

The exemplary status qualifies the local chapter to earn matching funds as part of the Beta Gamma Sigma Matching Funds Scholarship Program.

Only colleges who are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) may form a BGS chapter. AACSB accredits fewer than one in five business schools nationally.
