The Department of Business at Misericordia University inducted 52 business students into the Misericordia Chapter of the Sigma Beta Delta International Business Honor Society during an induction ceremony in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall.
The honor society's purpose is to encourage and recognize scholarship and accomplishment among students majoring in business, and to encourage and promote aspirations toward personal and professional improvement and a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind.
In order to be eligible for membership in Sigma Beta Delta, candidates for bachelor's and master's degrees in business must rank in the top 20 percent of their class at the time of invitation and also must have completed at least half of the degree program in which they are enrolled. While almost 300,000 students worldwide receive bachelor's degrees or master's degrees in business annually, only about 4,000 of them are eligible to be inducted into and receive lifetime membership in Sigma Beta Delta.
