The North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Business has welcomed 27 business scholars into the Beta Gamma Sigma International Business Honor Society on March 1, 2020.
Founded in 1913, the honor society is the highest recognition a business student can receive from an Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
Eligible students represent the top 10% of undergraduate students and the top 20% of graduate students at AACSB-accredited schools. The premier association accredits only 5% of business schools worldwide. The NCCU School of Business originally received accreditation in 2006.
NCCU’s chapter president Taylor Ford enjoys the network building aspect offered through membership.
“Beta Gamma Sigma impacted my undergraduate career tremendously,” said Ford. “The connections and relationships I have built through the affiliation of Beta Gamma Sigma is something that I will always cherish.”
Members are offered various networking and leadership opportunities including: conferences, workshops to strengthen interpersonal skills, exclusive scholarships, graduate application fee waivers and discounts to designated retailers.
The association’s value is not lost upon its members including NCCU’s chapter vice-president, Hollan Strepay.
“Being a member of Beta Gamma Sigma is an honor that comes with great responsibilities,” said Strepay. “I am proud to be a part of an organization that serves as a connector of both educational and professional opportunities.”
The 2019-2020 inductees possess the scholarly requirements and commitment to education that the association so richly represents. Three School of Business professors are also included among its news members.
