The Beta Gamma Sigma organization at PSU, a dean’s honor society for top business scholars, was named an Exemplary Chapter last fall at the Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic deans meeting in Chicago. A small number of schools at the event received the designation, which is available only to institutions that have earned the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation.
The designation is awarded to chapters based on how many eligible members they induct, as well as having a certain percentage of members accept lifetime memberships to the society. Last year, PSU President Steve Scott and Provost Lynette Olson were both inducted, along with 24 students and faculty from the College of Business.
The honor brings with it the eligibility to participate in Beta Gamma Sigma’s matching funds scholarship program, in which the organization matches scholarships awarded to members by PSU.
