MSUM achieved accreditation of its business programs by AACSB International in 2010 – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This is the most prestigious level of accreditation available to Business schools internationally. As a result of this achievement, the school was able to establish a chapter of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society in 2010.
On Friday, April 19 an induction ceremony was held for Twenty-Five MSU Moorhead students joining Beta Gamma Sigma. The School of Business at MSUM congratulates the 25 students so honored this year. They 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.
The following is a list of the 2012-2013 class of new Beta Gamma Sigma members:
