School of Business – Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society named a Premier Chapter

The Beta Gamma Sigma chapter at MSUM was recently honored by Beta Gamma Sigma as one of their Premier Chapters for the 2011-12 year. Beta Gamma Sigma is the honor society for universities that have achieved accreditation of their business programs by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This is the most prestigious level of accreditation available to business schools internationally. To qualify as a premier chapter, Beta Gamma Sigma requires a 75% acceptance rate following the invitation to join the honor society. The local chapter at MSUM achieved an acceptance rate of over 90% for the 2011-12 academic year.

These new members of Beta Gamma Sigma join an expanding worldwide network of more than 625,000 outstanding business professionals who have earned recognition through lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma. This is a very selective honor as only students ranking in the top 10 percent of the baccalaureate and top 20 percent of graduate programs at schools accredited by AACSB International are eligible for this invitation.
