Alpha Beta Gamma® is an International Business Honor Society established in 1970 to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students in business curricula.

To achieve this goal, Alpha Beta Gamma® provides leadership opportunities, forums for the exchange of ideas and the stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence. Since its founding, over 52,000 students from accredited community, junior, and technical colleges have been initiated in the Society.

Alpha Beta Gamma® is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, and an affiliate member of both the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and The Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).

The key responsibility of an Alpha Beta Gamma chapter is to promote Academic excellence. This may be accomplished by:

  • Recognition of students through a special initiation ceremony and the presentation of a membership diploma.

  • Operating within the constitution and bylaws of the National Organization.

  • Recognition of outstanding faculty and community leaders through honorary memberships.
