Mackenzie Mathis of Spartanburg and Alan Smith of Irmo, both students of the George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics at the University of South Carolina Upstate, will attend the Winter 2013 Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum. The Forum will be held in Jacksonville, Florida from January 31 to February 3.
The Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum brings together student members from colleges and universities across the country for a chance to improve their leadership skills. A hands-on experience, the Student Leadership Forum challenges the chosen participants to examine questions such as, “What Kind of Leader Will I Be?” Team-building exercises, social activities, networking and other activities make the Student Leadership Forum a very positive step forward in the professional lives of those taking part.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to send some of our Beta Gamma Sigma student members to the Leadership Forum.,” said Dr. Elnora W. Stuart, associate dean of the George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics at USC Upstate. “Students who have attended the Forums in previous years have come back telling us of their wonderful learning experiences and have been excellent ambassadors for the Johnson College and USC Upstate.”
Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.
