SOUTHFIELD—Lawrence Technological University’s chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma, the international business education honors fraternity, has been granted “High Honors” status by the organization for its activities during the 2021-2022 academic year.

Beta Gamma Sigma membership is reserved only for students attending colleges and universities accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide.

To celebrate this achievement, the LTU chapter will be recognized at Beta Gamma Sigma events, in the group’s social media, in its publications, and at additional AACSB events. including conferences and seminars held throughout the year.

“This recognition by Beta Gamma Sigma is a tribute to the hard work of our students, faculty, and staff, throughout the academic year, to create a top-quality business education program at Lawrence Tech,” said Bahman Mirshab, dean of LTU’s College of Business and Information Technology. “It is also further evidence that an LTU business education is a wise investment for students and their families.”

High Honors status means the LTU chapter is eligible to nominate candidates for the fraternity’s most prestigious awards, including Outstanding Chapter Advisor of the Year, the Business Achievement Award, and the Entrepreneurial Achievement Award, recognizing alumni who are business or entrepreneurial leaders. 

LTU’s College of Business and Information Technology first earned AACSB accreditation in 2018.
