This society, founded in 1913, invites select undergraduate and graduate students to join a talented pool of business professionals across all 50 states, and over 190 countries. BGS members are inducted turn their time as Fisher students and have gone on to hold key leadership positions in the business, entrepreneurial, government, non-profit, and academic sectors.

This designation recognizes active collegiate chapters that show commitment to academic excellence, leadership, through engaging their members, allowing them to take advantage of everything Beta Gamma Sigma has to offer.

BGS Honor Roll chapters are eligible to nominate for society-wide awards and yearlong international recognition at business education conferences.

“The School of Business faculty is proud to be recognized by Beta Gamma Sigma Global as a High Honors Chapter,” said Dr. Carol Wittmeyer, interim dean of the School. “This is a testament to our excellent academic quality affirmed by AACSB accreditation.”

Dr. Jason Berman, advisor of Beta Gamma Sigma, and Andi Balland, senior administrative assistant, pivoted last year during the COVID-19 pandemic to offer the chapter programming and student tapping virtually.

“The high-honors designation received from BGS is an affirmation of the commitment of the School of Business to our highest academic achievers. It is a celebration of the students' accomplishments; fully-earned and richly deserved,” said Dr. Jason Berman.
