Congratulations to our 2014 Beta Gamma Sigma members. On Sunday, February 23, The Mason School of Business held its annual Induction Ceremony into this prestigious honor society for business students in AACSB-accredited business programs. Eligible students must have GPAs in the top 10% of their class (undergraduates) or top 20% of their class (graduate students.)
At William & Mary, that’s a very noteworthy achievement!
Assistant Dean of MBA Programs Deborah Hewitt received an honorary induction into Beta Gamma Sigma. Those who know Dean Hewitt will wonder how she was not inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma as an undergraduate. We hasten to clarify that Dean Hewitt was an economics major, which is typically in a college of arts and sciences, and therefore, was not eligible for a business school honor society. Given Dean Hewitt’s long connections with and contributions to the Mason School of Business, this situation has now been righted.
Bud Robeson, Associate Dean for Faculty, presided over the ceremony as Mason’s Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter Secretary, Treasurer and Faculty Advisor. He listed the character traits associated with Beta Gamma Sigma and called on inductees to practice these principles throughout their lives and careers: honor and integrity, pursuit of wisdom, and earnestness. Dean Robeson recalled his academic career and encouraged students to consider the faculty path if they felt the calling. Dean Hewitt thanked Dean Robeson, who will retire in 2014, for his long-standing support of Beta Gamma Sigma at the Mason School of Business.
