Beta Gamma Sigma

The insurance and risk management field is a dynamic and highly competitive international industry where individual effort, knowledge, skill and creativity is recognized and reward- ed. UL Lafayette Risk and Insurance Man- agement graduates have a wide variety of job opportunities available to them such as: risk analyst, risk manager, underwriter, claims representative, adjuster, producer, broker,
agent, financial planner, premium auditor, loss control specialist, employee benefits manager,

Only the best business students in the world, and the professionals who earned the distinction of “the Best in Business” during their academic careers, can claim membership in Beta Gamma Sigma. This year’s Beta Gamma Sigma inductees from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette have certainly earned that title. The
B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration Chapter congratulates the two hundred and fifty students who have earned invitations in 2012-13. They join an expanding worldwide network of more than 625,000 out- standing business professionals who have earned recognition through lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma. Students ranking in the top 10 percent of the baccalaureate and top 20 percent of graduate programs at schools accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business are eligible for this invitation.

Beta Gamma Sigma lifetime membership is truly an international honor. With the expansion of accreditation by AACSB International, membership is no longer limited to those who have studied in the U.S. or Canada. Beta Gamma Sigma has installed collegiate chapters and inducted students on six continents. The most outstanding B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration students are eligible for the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International.

Beta Gamma Sigma was founded as a national organization on February 19, 1913. The first national honor society in business was a merger of three separate societies established to honor academic achievement in business at the University of Wisconsin, University of Illinois and the University of California. With collegiate chapters on five continents, Beta Gamma Sigma today is truly an international society that remains dedicat- ed to recognizing the most outstanding students of business and management. The Society serves business schools accredited by AACSB International in the 21st century.
