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.
