Goodman’s Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter awarded premier status


Brock University’s chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma has been designated as a “2014 Premier Chapter” by the Beta Gamma Sigma Board of Governors and Officers.

This is the 10th year in a row that the Goodman School of Business has been acknowledged as a premier chapter. Beta Gamma Sigma is an international honours society for business students.

Membership in the society is awarded to upper-year undergraduate students who are in the top 10% of their class and to graduate students who are in the top 20% of their class.

In 2014, 129 Goodman undergraduate and graduate students were inducted into the society.

A chapter can only earn premier status if at least 85% of eligible students choose to be inducted into the society.

Brock University is the only chapter in Ontario to achieve over a 90% acceptance rate in the past three years.

“We are very proud to be recognized for our commitment to recognizing academic excellence,” says Don Cyr, Goodman School of Business Dean. “Goodman students have shown us, year after year, how important it is to them to be recognized as the top business students in the world.”

To have a Beta Gamma Sigma chapter, a business school must be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
