HIU’s College of Business and Management has been accepted into the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society for Business, Management and Administration. Sigma Beta Delta serves institutions which 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 mission of Sigma Beta Delta is to encourage and recognize scholarship and accomplishment, to encourage and promote aspirations toward personal and professional improvement, and to live a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind. Sigma Beta Delta was established to honor students who have attained superior records in business programs in schools and colleges with regional accreditation.

To be eligible for membership, a business student must rank in the top 20 percent of the junior, senior or graduate class and be invited to membership by the faculty officers.
