Youngstown State University students Sophia Martini of Girard, Ohio, senior finance major, and Eric Walters of Boardman, Ohio, senior marketing management major, represented the YSU Williamson College of Business Administration at the Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum in San Antonio, Texas, in February.

The event brings together student members from colleges and universities around the world for a chance to improve their leadership skills. A hands-on experience, the forum includes team-building exercises, social activities, networking and other activities.

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Only 5 percent of business schools worldwide have AACSB accreditation. Since the YSU Beta Gamma Sigma chapter was installed in 2000, 560 business students have been inducted into the organization.
