UNK- Hard work has paid off for 26 University of Nebraska at Kearney business students, who have been inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma international honor society.
Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).
According to Marsha Yeagley, marketing and management senior lecturer, membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition any business student in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.
To be invited for Beta Gamma Sigma, juniors or seniors must have been in the top seven percent of their class, while graduate students must be in the top 20 percent of their class.
“Corporate recruiters actively seek individuals who have been elected into Beta Gamma Sigma,” Yeagley said. “The Beta Gamma Sigma designation sets a student apart from the crowd.”
According to Yeagley, newly inducted members receive a one-year subscription to Fortune magazine, and they also receive blue and gold honor cords which are worn during their graduation ceremony.
