Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society

Sigma Beta Delta, an international honor society for business students, was established to honor students who attained superior scholarships and achievements in business programs in schools and colleges with regional accreditation. Sigma Beta Delta signifies wisdom, honor, and the pursuit of meaningful aspirations. To be inducted into the society, students must rank in the upper 20 percent of their junior, senior, or master's class and be recommended by faculty officers. Sigma Beta Delta encourages students to distinguish themselves through honorable service to humankind.
