This spring, the Black School of Business inducted fifty-eight high-achieving students into Beta Gamma Sigma, the international business honor society for students of AACSB-accredited schools.

Justin Bloyd ’05, president of RB Sigma and one of the school’s Executives in Residence, was on hand to help congratulate the inductees who are all in the top 10 percent of their class academically.

The Black School of Business has maintained its accreditation by AACSB International—the highest standard of achievement in business education—since 2003.

AACSB accreditors assess a business school’s academic standards, the professional experience and intellectual contributions of faculty members, and the academic and career advising offered to students. They also survey the companies that hire graduates, asking how prepared those graduates are for their work. Accreditors revisit business schools every five years, and schools must demonstrate continuous improvement in all programs to maintain their AACSB accreditation.
