18th Oct 2021 | by the Department of PR & Marketing

AUK international business honor society—Beta Gamma Sigma—has been recognized as an honor chapter worldwide. The recognition comes after each active chapter is evaluated and ranked according to their achievements and contributions to the field of business education. Christina Allrich, executive director of Beta Gamma Sigma said, “Qualifying for this recognition is indicative of a campus where academic excellence is highly valued, and where the chapter officers work diligently to enhance Beta Gamma Sigma’s stature on campus.” 

The AUK chapter was evaluated based on criteria set by the honor society which included hosting campus events and promoting the society with excellent academic standing.

AUK assistant professor of accounting and faculty advisor to the AUK chapter, Dr. Fatima Shibly commented on the significance on this achievement, saying, “It is a great honor and achievement to qualify for this recognition in our first year as a BGS chapter, and in such unusual circumstances given the Covid-19 pandemic. I would like to thank the president of the chapter and AUK student, Anas Hassan and all the board members for organizing the chapter’s activities this year, as well as the other members for their active participation. My appreciation goes also to the Office of Student Life, Division of Student Affairs for their continuous help in organizing the activities. Finally, my sincere gratitude goes to the dean of the College of Business and Economics, Dr. Ralph Palliam for his guidance and support.”
Beta Gamma Sigma is an international business honor society for AACSB accredited institutions. Business/pre-business students in their second, third or fourth year of study (or its equivalent in course work: sophomore, junior, senior) ranked among the upper 10 percent of their class would be eligible to join the honor society. 

The AUK Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma was established in August 2020. AUK was Beta Gamma Sigma’s 613th collegiate chapter established worldwide.
