ATLANTA, GA (August 20, 2012) -- Argosy University, Atlanta is pleased to announce its induction as Chapter #370 of the Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society for Business.
Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society was founded as an honor society for students in business, management, and administration. The organization serves institutions that offer baccalaureate and graduate degrees in business, management, and administration where the institution holds accreditation from one of the six regional accrediting bodies but not specialized accreditation in business.
The creation of Sigma Beta Delta in 1986 follows a 200-year tradition of honoring scholastic achievement in higher education, beginning with the establishment of Phi Beta Kappa in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1776. Sigma Beta Delta is part of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS). Founded in 1925, ACHS is the nation’s only certifying agency for college and university honor societies. ACHS sets standards for organizational excellence and for scholastic eligibility for the various categories of membership: general, specialized, leadership, freshman, and two-year honor societies. To assure member participation in governance, honor societies must be structured on a membership basis so that the interests of individual members are advanced.
