The Raymond A. Mason School of Business is proud to announce the induction of over 100 new members into the scholastic honor society Beta Gamma Sigma for the 2020-2021 academic school year.
Students from the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Accounting (MAcc), Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA), and Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs will be recognized during a virtual ceremony on Friday March 19th.
The ceremony will include remarks delivered by Mason School Dean Larry Pulley and Jeff Rogatz, MBA ’87 who serves as the Managing Director of Robert W. Baird & Co., a multinational investment bank and financial services company that specializes in wealth management, capital markets, asset management, and private equity.
Three professors, Joe Wilck, Alex Woods, and Robert Williams will explain the significance behind each letter. They were selected for this honor due to the contributions they’ve made to the academic experience for students at the graduate and undergraduate levels in both the residential and online program modalities.
Beta is the first letter of the Greek word “bebaeos,” which signifies honor; Gamma is the first letter of the Greek word “gnosis” which means wisdom; and Sigma is the first letter of the Greek word “spoude,” which means earnestness. These three traits can be found in all inductees.
Beta Gamma Sigma was founded in 1907 and is comprised of a global network of over 600 chapters in 190 countries. William & Mary’s chapter was founded in 1973. Students inducted into the organization are among the most distinguished in their respective programs, consisting of the top 20% of graduate students and the top 10% of undergraduate students.
Professor Pamela Schlosser will oversee the induction of the 53 MBA, 15 MAcc, 23 MSBA, and 12 BBA inductees will all be additionally recognized during William & Mary’s spring commencement ceremony activities which will be held later this year.
