Student Organizations

One of the central convictions of the Lasallian mission is that learning is best achieved by doing. Which is why we offer so many learning experiences outside of a traditional classroom setting. Including many business clubs and organizations.

American Marketing Association

Our mission is to enhance students’ knowledge of the current marketing industry, aiming to connect what’s learned in the classroom to how it will be applied in the real world. We expose our members to various careers in marketing through guest speakers, alumni and networking events, and career-building activities. These opportunities are key in developing leadership and communication skills throughout the four-year college experience.

Beta Gamma Sigma

Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) is the honor society serving business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)—a distinction held by less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide. Induction into BGS is one of the highest achievements available to business students in the world. For nine of the last 10 years, Beta Gamma Sigma has honored the La Salle University chapter as an Outstanding Chapter. In 2013, the La Salle chapter was recognized as the Silver program out of 528 collegiate chapters worldwide.

Membership is only extended to the top 7 percent and 10 percent academically of junior and senior business majors, respectively, and the top 20 percent of graduating MBA students from AACSB-accredited schools.
