Beta Gamma Sigma Undergraduate Program

​​BGS recognized members at the Undergraduate Level are students within the top 10% of their respective class

​​​​​​Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS)​​ is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International – Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. A membership in BGS is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.

Major events

Tapping ceremony

Holding a tapping ceremony is a very effective method for inviting recognized students to the BGS membership. The ceremony helps make the invitation process extra special for new invitees. Tapping is a method where BGS faculty, Student Officers, and sometimes even the Dean, visit selected business classes to formally present invitations to students during class time

Global leadership summit

At the BGS Global Leadership Summit, three OSB students join hundreds of other top business school students from around the globe for a learning experience like no other. They participate in a variety of intensive exercises designed to challenge them and showcase their skills.

Founders day

BGS commemorates its anniversary with the AUB Founders Week celebration. The Society takes a look back at its long history of honoring “the best in business," while at the same time considering its impact on the business world of the future.

Community service

Despite busy schedules, active lives, and often serving as leaders within their communities, BGS members are encouraged to participate in volunteering activities. The Society's mission statement touches upon this concept of not only recognizing honor, wisdom, and earnestness, but also leadership and service.

Induction ceremony

Recognition ceremonies are dedicated to honoring the accomplishments of newly inducted BGS members. The recognition ceremony is a huge moment for students becoming new members, for the chapter gaining new leaders, for the organization growing in number, and next big thing to come from the “Best and Brightest."​
