PURPOSE: The purpose of Sigma Beta Delta is to promote higher scholarship in business and to recognize and reward scholastic achievement in business and economic subjects.
ELIGIBILITY: Candidates for bachelor's and master's degrees who rank in the upper 20% of their class at the time of invitation to membership may be inducted into membership following completion of at least one half of the degree program in which they enrolled. Undergraduates may be inducted as early as their junior year. Doctoral students who have completed all requirements for that degree may be inducted without restriction as to number. Sigma Beta Delta chapters are established in U.S. colleges and universities that grant the associate, baccalaureate, or higher degrees and that are accredited by one of the regional accrediting agencies. The society allows for the establishment of chapters at non-U.S. institutions provided they meet and maintain standards and requirements with regard to mission and quality.
MAJOR ACTIVITIES: Sigma Beta Delta annually awards fellowships to undergraduate and masterís students.
