GWSB and honor society Beta Gamma Sigma have erected a bronze key dedicated to academic and professional excellence at the intersection of Duquès and Funger Halls. According to Beta Gamma Sigma, the bronze key is a symbol of scholastic achievement signaling the excellence of business programs.
Beta Gamma Sigma is an international honors society that recognizes top business schools for their academic distinction and accreditation with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). GWSB established its chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma in 1979, shortly after becoming AACSB accredited.
“We’ve been honoring outstanding students ever since,” says Professor of Finance William Handorf, current president of the GW chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma.
In addition to Handorf, officers in the GW chapter include George M. Jabbour, professor of finance, Pradeep A. Rau, professor of marketing, and Scheherazade Rehman, professor of international business and director of the European Union Research Center. Students are inducted based on their relative GPA. For juniors and seniors, the top 5 percent of the class and for graduate students, the top 10 percent are invited into the society. Normally, the chapter also inducts one faculty member each year based on outstanding academic and/or service contributions to the School.
