Fisher’s Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter Receives Premier Ranking
The Business Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter of the School of Business was named a Premier Chapter for the 2011-12 academic year by Beta Gamma Sigma, the International Honor Society for Business Excellence.
Fisher’s chapter inducted 36 new members last year – an 88% acceptance rate among the students who were eligible to join based on their GPA.
Being a Premier Chapter gives Fisher’s BGS members entrée to a variety of training and conferences during the year, award program participation, and eligibility for the BGS Matching Funds Scholarship Program, among other things.
“Being named a Premier Chapter exemplifies the dedication our faculty and staff have to creating a culture of excellence for our students, and we are proud to have achieved this recognition,” said Dr. David Martin, Dean, School of Business.
BGS is exclusive only to those institutions accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
BGS was founded as a national organization on February 19, 1913. The first national honor society in business was a merger of three separate societies established to honor academic achievement in business at the University of Wisconsin, University of Illinois, and the University of California.
