Beta Gamma Sigma, established in 1919, is the only scholastic honor society recognized by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. In 1921, Beta Gamma Sigma amended its constitution to restrict the installation of new chapters to collegiate schools of business which are accredited members of AACSB International.

Honor is personal integrity and excellence of character. It is an enduring quality found in all persons who deserve to lead others.
Wisdom is knowledge tested by experience and tempered by discerning judgment. It abhors prejudice, it insists upon freedom of thought and expression.
Earnestness is enthusiasm measured by achievement, disciplined by reason and ennobled by sincerity. It is that dynamic quality which is essential for all great achievement.
The Mission of the International Honor Society Beta Gamma Sigma is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, to foster personal and professional excellence, to advance the values of the Society, and to serve its lifelong members. The Mission is supported by the five Objectives of the Society:
To be eligible for membership, the academic ranking of those being considered must place them in the upper 10 percent of the junior class, upper 10 percent of the senior class, or upper 20 percent of the graduating master's class. Local chapters may require higher standards.
While almost 300,000 students receive bachelor's or master's degrees in business in the U.S. each year, only about 17,000 students are elected to membership in Beta Gamma Sigma.
