Sigma Beta Delta was established to honor students who have attained superior records in business programs in schools and colleges with regional accreditation.  

Sigma Beta Delta 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. To date, Sigma Beta Delta has installed over 450 chapters in 48 states while inducting over 90,000 members worldwide.
