Philip Hall of Boardman, Ohio, a junior majoring in marketing management at Youngstown State University, has been selected to receive a scholarship from the Williamson College of Business Administration’s chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma international honor society.

For the past eight years, the YSU chapter of BGS has been designated as a Premier Chapter for its outstanding membership acceptance rate. As a result, in addition to recognition in BGS publications, the YSU chapter is eligible to grant a $1,000 chapter scholarship.

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. The Williamson College of Business Administration received initial accreditation from AACSB in April 2000. Only 5 percent of  business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB. The YSU Beta Gamma Sigma chapter was installed on June 11, 2000. To date, the chapter has inducted 560 business students into the organization.
