Committing to Excellence

Each year, the Leavey School of Business inducts new students into the Santa Clara University chapter of the international business 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 Caryn Beck-Dudley at the ceremony. “These scholars are our very best students. We are proud and honored to have them as a part of our community.”

Santa Clara alumnus Kirk Syme ‘80 (pictured left with Dean Caryn Beck-Dudley), founder and president of Woodstock Development and an active member of Santa Clara University’s Board of Regents, was honored as the 2016 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. 

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