Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is a prestigious international honour society for students and staff of business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Aston Business School (ABS) gained its own AACSB accreditation in 2003 and is one of a small number of UK schools to win this international recognition. AACSB International assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement in undergraduate and postgraduate education in business administration and accounting. This accreditation has enabled ABS to establish a BGS Collegiate Chapter and Aston University is the first institution in the UK to be allied with Beta Gamma Sigma.
By accepting the invitation to join BGS you will become part of the world's largest network of Business School alumni. As the highest honor attainable at an AACSB accredited school of business, Beta Gamma Sigma membership is not only a symbol of high achievement, but also a beacon of things to come. The best predictor of future success is past achievement, and membership in BGS is a great way to show potential employers you have what it takes to perform at the highest levels.
