Beta Gamma Sigma


In 1907, students at the University of Wisconsin received permission to organize a commerce honor society called Beta Gamma Sigma. The purpose was to encourage academic accomplishment in the field of business studies. At the same time, two other universities established similar societies with the same purpose. In 1913, after becoming aware of the coexistence of the three societies, representatives met at Madison, Wisconsin to merge the groups into a national organization. 

In 1919, action was initiated to establish Beta Gamma Sigma is the only scholastic honor society recognized  by AACSB. (American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business which later was renamed AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.)
