Thirty Business Students Inducted into Prestigious Society
- By Elizabeth Parent
Thirty undergraduate and graduate University of Vermont School of Business Administration students were inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), a prestigious international honor society that recognizes the outstanding academic achievements of students enrolled in collegiate business and management programs.
Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a student can receive in an undergraduate or master's program in business schools accredited by the International Association to Advance College Schools of Business or AACSB. Only the top 10% of juniors and seniors and the top 20% of graduate students are eligible for membership into this prestigious society. The students' selection not only recognizes academic achievement, but it also expresses confidence in the students' abilities and promise to become responsible leaders in the future.
This year's ceremony featured Damon Gregoire ('92), the Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Chief Financial Officer at 3D Systems Corporation. Mr. Gregoire is a School of Business Administration alum and member of Beta Gamma Sigma.
"Be hard on problems, soft on people," Mr. Gregoire told the new inductees.
The School of Business Administration was recently named an "Exemplary Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter" for the 2011-2012 year.
The thirty new members are:
