Beta Gamma Sigma, the School of Business’s honor student organization, was awarded the title of Highest Honors Chapter.
Dean of the School of Business, Dr. Hector Quintanilla announced the great news this summer.
Highest Honors Chapter is the highest level of recognition a chapter can earned as a part of the Chapter Honor Roll Program.
This title comes along with benefits such as the ability to nominate other chapters for chapter awards and the Global Leadership Summit Registration Scholarship.
The School of Business received AACSB accreditation in 2014 which gave them the authority to establish Beta Gamma Sigma in 2015.
Dr. Sua Jeon, co-faculty advisor, believes that although she and Dr. Heida Reed have helped along the way, the students deserve most of the credit for the achievement.
“This is the student’s organization,” Dr. Jeon said. “They lead the group. They facilitate discussions and activities. I am simply guiding them in the right direction.”
Senior marketing and management major Nikita Dhoubhadel believes the students couldn’t do it alone.
“It is an honor for our chapter to receive this award. It speaks volumes about this past year’s executive board and faculty advisors,” Dhoubhadel said.
This past graduation, Dr. Jeon and Dr. Reed wanted to reward the graduating Beta Gamma Sigma members for all that they do.
“One of the things we did last semester was provide chords for their regalia,” Dr. Reed said. “We also set the students up to meet with alumni to get their face out there and prepare them for real job interviews.”
