Having successfully obtained accreditation from AACSB International*, the College of International Management and the Graduate School of Management are recognized as providers of world-class business education.
As an AACSB-accredited school, APU earned the right to establish a chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), a premier honor society that only serves students of AACSB-accredited business programs. On July 11, a BGS induction ceremony was held and 32 APU students were admitted as new members of BGS.
BGS was formally founded in 1913, making it one of the oldest scholastic honor societies for business students. Only the highest-performing students of AACSB-accredited schools are invited to join the society. As of August 2018, there are approximately 830,000 members in over 590 chapters in 190 countries and regions. Students can join BGS while enrolled, and they remain members for life.
