Prestigious Society Inducts Business School Students

Lawrence Garb ('91), EVP Administration Hartz Mountain Industries, Inc. speaks at the 2014 BGS induction ceremony

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) 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.  

Today, 18 undergraduate and graduate University of Vermont School of Business Administration students were inducted into BGS, the international honor society that recognizes the outstanding academic achievements of students enrolled in collegiate business and management programs.

The students' selection not only recognizes academic achievements, it also expresses confidence in their abilities and promise to become responsible leaders in the future.

This year's ceremony featured Lawrence Garb ('91), the Executive Vice President of Administration at Hartz Mountain Industries.  Mr. Garb is a School of Business Administration alum and member of Beta Gamma Sigma.
