The Lagos Business School chapter of the Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) society on Saturday, November 17, 2019, inducted 22 new members and elected new executives at its third recognition ceremony held at the School.
Beta Gamma Sigma is the exclusive business honour society for students enrolled in business and management programmes accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
The ceremony witnessed the emergence of Executive MBA 23 student, Adedayo Oyedola as President as she received the baton of leadership of the chapter from outgoing President, Oghogho Osula. Other newly elected student officers include Ibhade Akpede (EMBA 23) and Jane Nwaogu, Chinevu Amadi and Oluwaseun Egbeola, all of the Full-Time MBA 17 class.
In her speech, outgoing President, Oghogho Osula urged the new inductees to take on the responsibility that comes with being a life member of the Society. Osula said, “It is no ordinary feat that you have reached where you are now, and it is owing to your dedication and diligence. You have been selected as one of the privileged few to be honoured for academic excellence, and this honour comes with a lot of prestige and opportunities.”
Speaking on the achievements of her tenure, Osula added that in only four months, the LBS BGS Chapter moved from ‘High Honours’ to ‘Highest Honours’ out of over 540 collegiate chapters in business schools accredited by AACSB International.
Election to lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest honour a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s programme at a school accredited by AACSB International.
The LBS BGS chapter was established in November 2017.
