Beta Gamma Sigma represents “the best in business” and members reside in all 50 states and in more than 190 countries.

While the traditional induction ceremony scheduled for April 16, 2020, was cancelled this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Dean Walker said it is important that “these deserving students who worked hard to achieve this distinction be celebrated” especially during these difficult times.
