Global Gateway Program

Five international students who completed the Global Gateway Program were admitted into Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society at the University of Vermont.

Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, also known as AACSB International. AACSB International is an American professional organization that was founded in 1916 to accredit schools of business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma society is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.

As noted in the 2016 Dean's Report, "Thirty undergraduate and graduate Grossman School of Business students were inducted this year. The students' selection not only recognizes academic achievements, it also expresses confidence in their abilities and promise to become responsible leaders in the future."

Those five international students that completed the Global Gateway Program are: Chan Lin, Wanming Chen, Yuqian Hou, Xinyang Yu, and Chen Yang.

Former GGP student Chen Yang credits the Global Gateway Program for helping her achieve this level of success at UVM. "The GGP improved my English writing and speaking skills, which are so important for an international student to study abroad. [Teaching] is very interactive. Professors are really patient and try their best to teach what's most useful for international students. I have become more active in class, began participating in class discussions and always ask questions."

Congratulations to the new Beta Gamma Sigma society members!
