Meet the Dean: Interview with Prof. Dr. Thomas Cleff, Dean Pforzheim Business School and President BGS Chapter Pforzheim, in "Honors" (Spring 2017), the official BGS magazine.
The BGS mission is to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, foster personal and professional excellence, advance the values of the Society, and serve its lifelong members. The Society’s name is composed of three letters of the Greek alphabet which signify honour (? – Bebaeos), wisdom (? – Gnosis), and earnestness (? – Spoude).
The membership is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate, masters or doctoral program at a school accredited by AACSB International – and this by invitation only.
In January 2014, Pforzheim Business School opened its Beta Gamma Sigma Chapter. As the Business School has been AACSB accredited since 2012, the opening of the BGS Chapter was the next consequential step. The possibility to nominate and induct its best students to become Beta Gamma Sigma members is a very valuable chance the Business School can now use to become even more attractive for collegiate high-potentials.
Since the opening, two induction ceremonies have been taking place, the first in May 2014 and the second in June 2015. The next induction ceremony will be held on June 22, 2016.
