Beta Gamma Sigma is a well known international organization which this year celebrates 102 years of recognized academic excellence. In order to maintain a chapter, a university must have a college of business, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSBI).  Thus, Beta Gamma Sigma has established more than 500 collegiate chapters in all 50 U.S. states and more than 160 countries around the world.  The University of West Georgia is one of these.
