The Beta Gamma Sigma society at the Wright State University Raj Soin College of Business has qualified for prestigious recognition as an honors chapter.
Beta Gamma Sigma is an international academic honor society with over 800,000 members selected from more than 540 collegiate chapters in business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Beta Gamma Sigma’s mission is to encourage and honor academic achievement in business and to foster professional excellence.
Harleen Bajaj, president of the Wright State chapter, said the honors recognition is an affirmation of the chapter’s high standards and quality of its membership.
“Beta Gamma Sigma members are all high-achieving professionals who want to have leadership and networking opportunities, who want to excel in the workforce,” she said.
Bajaj, of Beavercreek, majors in accounting and finance while also pursuing a certificate in business analytics. After graduation she wants to earn her master’s degree in accounting and become a certified public accountant.
High academically achieving business students become part of the Beta Gamma Sigma chapter by invitation. Typically, 30 to 40 students are inducted each year.
Gavan Griesmeyer, chapter vice president, said the national honors recognition signifies that the Wright State chapter is active and engaged.
Griesmeyer, of Tipp City, majors in financial services and came to Wright State because of its strong financial services program. He coordinates events such as having corporate executives come to campus to speak. After graduation, he hopes to get a job in investment analytics or a related field.
