The College of Business inducted more than 55 new members into the ECU Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The ECU chapter also maintained its Exemplary Chapter status this year.
The spring induction reception and award presentation was held on April 25 to honor and recognize the students and their families. Danny Scott (MGMT ‘84), College of Business alumnus and member of the Board of Trustees, offered congratulatory remarks and tips for success to the inductees. He also received the Chapter Honoree Award recognizing his success in business and his reflection of the ideals Beta Gamma members strive to uphold: honor, wisdom, and earnestness.
Beta Gamma Sigma membership is the highest recognition a business student can achieve. Two times each year, the College of Business inducts eligible students and faculty into Beta Gamma Sigma. Membership is by invitation only and is based upon eligibility criteria, including those who rank in the top 7% of the junior class, top 10% of the senior class, and top 20% of graduate students within the College of Business. Prior to nomination, the entire faculty of the College of Business reviews each candidate to ensure he or she meets the standards of character and integrity that membership represents.
Assistant Professor Rebecca Fay (ACCT) currently serves as faculty advisor and president of ECU’s Beta Gamma Sigma chapter.
