Beta Gamma Sigma, the international business honor society, named the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh College of Business a 2012 Outstanding Chapter Honorable Mention. The Outstanding Chapter Award recognizes Beta Gamma Sigma collegiate chapter excellence around the nation.
The Outstanding Chapter Award is presented at four levels: gold, silver, bronze and honorable mention. This is the second time the College of Business has received the honorable mention award. To be considered for Beta Gamma Sigma’s Outstanding Chapter Award, chapters must complete and return a survey that details their membership acceptance and activities. Only chapters with a membership acceptance rate of 85 percent or greater are eligible for consideration.
“Being selected as the Outstanding Chapter Honorable Mention again, out of 513 member chapters, is a great achievement. We’re very proud that our work is recognized at the national level and all of our members, current and alumni, should be proud to be part of this great honor society,” said College of Business Dean Bill Tallon.
In addition to securing the 2012 Outstanding Chapter Award honorable mention accolade, the college chapter will also receive a $500 scholarship from Beta Gamma Sigma to present to one of its outstanding student members.
Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Forty-five College of Business juniors, seniors, and graduate students, one College of Business faculty member and one outstanding College of Business alumnus were inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma on March 30, 2012.
