Beta Gamma Sigma

Overview

The Beta Gamma Sigma CUHK Chapter was established in 2000, as the first chapter outside of North America, to honour academic excellence and to encourage personal and professional excellence among its members. The only scholastic honour society recognised by AACSB International, Beta Gamma Sigma awards membership to undergraduate students in their second year or above with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) in the top 10% and graduate students in the top 20%.

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the most prestigious recognition awarded to a business student, and the society further awards two veteran business leaders who embody its ideals through exceptional leadership as Chapter Honorees every year.


History

Founded as an American national organisation in 1913, Beta Gamma Sigma is the first national honour society in business. Originally a merger of three separate honour societies at the University of Wisconsin, University of Illinois, and the University of California, the society only allows business schools accredited by AACSB to join. Beta Gamma Sigma currently has more than 580 chapters worldwide dedicated to fostering outstanding and ethical business leadership.
