  •  Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society Inducts New Members

    Thursday, Jun. 18, 2015 2:24 PM

    Each year, the Leavey School of Business inducts new students into Santa Clara University’s chapter of the international honor society Beta Gamma Sigma. Only the top 20% of graduate business students, and the top 10% of undergraduate business students are invited to join. A ceremony to celebrate new inductees was held on campus this spring; all Beta Gamma Sigma members, both current students and alumni, were invited. 

    This year’s inductees “embody the commitment to excellence and the intellectual values that are the soul of every University,” said Dean Drew Starbird at the ceremony. “These scholars are our very best students. We are proud and honored to have them as a part of our community.”

    Alumna Rebecca Jacoby MBA ’95, chief information officer and senior vice president of Cisco Systems, delivered the keynote as the 2015 Beta Gamma Simga chapter honoree. This award is conferred upon those who have advanced the ideals of the Society through outstanding business and managerial leadership.  

    One hundred and fifty five current students are part of Beta Gamma Sigma’s ranks. Congratulations to all who were initiated into this international honor society!
