COBA's honor society chapter named 'exemplary,' eligible for scholarship

For immediate release
October 28, 2004

The Abilene Christian University collegiate chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, a business honor society for AACSB International -- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, has been recognized as an Exemplary Chapter for its superior level of membership acceptance in the 2003-2004 academic year.

Each year, collegiate Beta Gamma Sigma chapters extend invitations to the top seven percent of business juniors, the upper 10 percent of business seniors, and the highest 20 percent of business graduate students. Chapters reporting a 70 percent acceptance rate of invited potential members at both the graduate and undergraduate level, and those chapters indicating an 85 percent acceptance rate at one academic level, are considered to be exemplary.

With Exemplary Chapter status, ACU's College of Business Administration BGS chapter is now eligible to award a $1,000 Beta Gamma Sigma scholarship in the 2005-2006 academic year. The chapter will also receive a certificate commemorating its exemplary accomplishments.

Of the 417 Beta Gamma Sigma chapters currently established on college and university campuses, only 52 were recognized as an Exemplary Chapter in 2004.

About Beta Gamma Sigma: Founded in 1913, Beta Gamma Sigma is the honor society for AACSB International Ė The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which accredited ACU last year. Beta Gamma Sigma annually extends Society membership to the best and brightest students from AACSB accredited business programs. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma provides students with lifelong recognition of their high scholarly achievement, a benefit they carry throughout the rest of their academic and professional careers.
