Founded in 1913, Beta Gamma Sigma is the first national honor society in the business field and was established to honor academic achievement in the field of business. Today it is a society that provides the highest recognition a business student can receive in a baccalaureate or graduate program at an AACSB accredited school.
The event began with opening remarks from Michael A. Yahr, Professor of Management, and Sarah Rudy, Student Vice President of Beta Gamma Sigma.
While introducing new student inductees, the event also recognized three non-student Honorees with ties to Robert Morris University, Robert D. Jones, Dewitt Peart, and Dr. Allan Zeman. (shown in the first row below)
Student recipients consisted of 11 undergraduate students and graduate students. Also awarded induction into the organization were Dr. Cathleen Jones and Ralph R. Reiland.
