Beta Gamma Sigma recently named the College of Business Administration’s Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) a “High Honors” chapter.
BGS is the premier international business honor society. Earning the high honors distinction affords CPP recognitions on the BGS website at conferences, and in publications. Awarded chapters are also eligible to nominate candidates to the BGS global awards.
BGS membership is highly competitive as only the highest performing business students (top 10 percent of undergraduate and top 20 percent of graduate business students), and the top 5 percent of the business schools in the world that are recognized by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) are invited to be BGS members.
“We are very proud of our BGS students for this outstanding achievement and international recognition. Their leadership and impact demonstrate and illuminate the value of Cal Poly Pomona’s inclusive polytechnic education,” said CBA Interim Dean Larisa Preiser-Houy.
In Spring 2022, CBA welcomed 58 new members who were inducted as lifetime members into the CPP chapter of BGS at a ceremony hosted by the chapter advisor, Preeti Wadhwa, associate professor of management. Graduating BGS members were also recognized during this ceremony.
“BGS students and alumni at CPP exemplify the highest standards of academic excellence in any business program,” Wadhwa said. “They are not just high academic achievers, but are also excellent team players, creative problem solvers, and effective leaders.”
BGS is the only scholastic business honor society that is recognized by the AACSB and currently has over 600 chapters with more than 900,000 members. To learn more about CPP Beta Gamma Sigma chapter, please contact chapter advisor Preeti Wadhwa.
