The Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) international honor society has officially announced the installation of the American University of Kuwait chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma.  BGS is a world-renowned honor society recognizing business excellence since 1913. 
 
Dr Fatima Shibly, AUK Assistant Professor of Accounting has been appointed as Faculty Advisor of the newly established AUK BGS Chapter.  As members of BGS, AUK graduate and undergraduate students of high academic record can enjoy the privileges of the membership among other members from 190 countries around the world. Chapter members are recognized for their academic excellence and have opportunities to network with business professionals from a wide range of career fields.
 
According to Christina Allrich, BGS Director of Collegiate Chapter Operations “Membership in BGS is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or graduate program at a school accredited by AACSB.”
 
The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has awarded AUK full accreditation for its College of Business and Economics. AACSB International (AACSB), a global nonprofit association, connects educators, students, and business to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders.
