					The Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society is an international group that encourages and honors academic
achievement in business. It serves programs that are accredited by the Association to Advance
Collegiate Schools of Business. Only students in these programs can gain admittance to Beta Gamma
Sigma, and membership in the society is the highest honor a business student can receive. Members can
gain career assistance, connections to and guidance on graduate school programs, discounts on certain
publications—including The Wall Street Journal and Business Week, as well as deals on travel,
insurance, test preps, business attire, and more. Membership is also an easy and efficient way to stay in
touch with old friends and make new connections. Students at the University of Wisconsin founded the
Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society in 1907. Since then, it has surpassed a number of milestones. In
1933, the society inducted its first female members; by 1963, it consisted of 102 chapters and 43,000
members and established its first National Honoree Award. A little over 20 years later, the society
began presenting its first Outstanding Chapter Awards. The Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society became
an international group in 1989, when it opened a chapter at the University of Calgary. Today, the Beta
Gamma Sigma Honor Society has over 500,000 members throughout the world, and regularly hosts
events like the Virtual Career Fair, the Student Leadership Forum, and the Founders' Week Webinar. To
