California Southern University has established a chapter of the Sigma Beta Delta international honor society for the School of Business. The inaugural induction ceremony for Sigma Beta Delta was held at CalSouthern world headquarters on Wednesday, March 8th, where the top Learners within the BBA, MBA, and DBA programs were recognized. Learners were invited to attend the ceremony both on campus as well as through WebEx, giving the university the privilege of honoring the inductees, both locally and globally.
The purpose of the Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society is to encourage and recognize scholarship and accomplishment among students of business, management, and administration. It is also to inspire and promote personal and professional improvement and a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind.
Learners must rank in the top 20% of their program to be invited to join the prestigious honor society. Accepting membership represents a mark of excellence to one’s personal and professional path. This lifetime membership is the highest international recognition a business student can receive. CalSouthern is proud to celebrate its hard-working and dedicated Learners.
The School of Business will be holding two induction ceremonies per year for Learners who qualify for membership in Sigma Beta Delta.
