Thirty-nine students and an accomplished alumnus have been recognized by the Bryan School of Business and Economics at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and inducted into the Beta Gamma Sigma international honor society in April.

Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is an international honor society for business students. Qualifying for membership is the highest scholastic honor a student in business can obtain. To be eligible, students must rank in the upper 10  percent of their junior class, the upper 10 percent of their senior class or the upper 20 percent of their graduate class.

Schools with BGS chapters must be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). Faculty and student inductees from the Bryan School’s inaugural class of 1983 were invited to the 30th anniversary celebration and induction ceremony.
