For business students, achieving membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the equivalent of liberal arts students earning Phi Beta Kappa designation.
This year, the Zarb School of Business’s chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the premier business honor society, achieved Exemplary Chapter status. Only a select number of Beta Gamma Sigma’s 500 worldwide chapters achieve this status based on their membership induction and their support of the principles of the organization.
At the on-campus chapter member induction ceremony this spring hosted by chapter advisor Professor Glen Vogel, the Zarb chapter honored distinguished alum Larry Roman. Mr. Roman, a very successful entrepreneur and businessman, was honored not only for his success in business, but also because he has generously devoted both his time and financial support to many worthwhile charitable organizations and has been a long-time supporter of Hofstra University.
As a result of its new Exemplary Chapter status, the Theta Chapter was invited by the headquarters of Beta Gamma Sigma to be one of the pilot chapters to launch the new BGS 2.0 initiative starting this fall. Only a select few chapters were asked to pilot this new initiative as BGS begins its second century as the premier business honor society.
