The SML is further strengthening its Beta Gamma Sigma collegiate chapter. With the installation of the SML Chapter’s executive student leadership team, all required bodies are now in place.
The School of Management and Law (SML) is proud to announce the installation of a highly motivated executive student leadership team to support its chapter of the international honor society Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS). The three BGS student officers are: Luca Genovese (President), Nina Beutler (VP Programming), and Sonja Bilang (VP Membership/PR). They represent the part-time study program ‘BSc in Business Administration with a Specialization in Accounting, Controlling, Auditing’, where they have learned to collaborate efficiently. It will definitely be a challenge for them to complete their final year of study, work a demanding business job, and at the same time build a BGS student representation from scratch.
The role of a BGS student officer is to promote student involvement, facilitate operations, and improve the value of BGS membership. Other aims include increasing the profile of BGS on campus and ensuring that students invited to join BGS are aware of what this means and agree to become members. Two official meetings have already taken place to help get the student officers organized and started on their new duties. The team will contact all Chapter members in the near future with a survey and other information.
Additional Recognition Ceremony
The SML Collegiate Chapter held an additional recognition ceremony in front of the BGS Key to induct new members on 29 June 2016. One Chapter Honoree and five faculty members who had not been able to attend the installation and recognition ceremony last February were welcomed by Professor André Haelg, Dean of the SML and President of the BGS Collegiate Chapter. “The faculty is not only the brain but also the heart of a university. We can be proud to have such a broad selection of excellent academics here at the School of Management and Law,” he said and expressed his thanks for the inductees’ great support, in particular during the last few years, acknowledging that the faculty had been forced to overcome many challenges in order to enable the SML . Finally, he reminded them to continue to live by the ideals of BGS, promote the honor society among their colleagues, and encourage students to give their best and strive for membership.
