SIGMA BETA DELTA | Wisdom. Honor. Aspirations.

Sigma Beta Delta is an honor society for students in business, management, and administration degree programs. The Baker chapter membership is exclusive to selected candidates based on specific criteria. An  induction ceremony is held in the spring and fall each year.


The mission of Sigma Beta Delta is to encourage and recognize scholarship and accomplishment among students of business, management, and administration and to encourage and promote aspirations toward personal and professional improvement and 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.

Meaning of Sigma Beta Delta

Sigma is the initial letter of the Greek word for wisdom. Wisdom is knowledge gained over time, analyzed and used with discernment. Wisdom is not merely information, but allows one to acknowledge information, consider its validity and relevance, and then incorporate into one’s own life what is appropriate.

Beta is the initial letter of the Greek word that signifies honor. Honor is a personal quality of the highest value. Honorable people are held in esteem, considered to be trustworthy, and admired by others because they live a life that is worthy of such recognition. Honorable people have chosen to live a life that is bound by integrity and ethical decision making. They respect others and are willing to provide leadership to the benefit of humankind.

Delta is the initial letter of the Greek word that signifies the pursuit of meaningful aspirations. People of wisdom and honor must aspire to a course to achieve their objectives, for goals without action are no more fulfilling than action without goals. To aspire toward the fulfillment of one’s goals to serve humankind and develop personally and professionally will lead to a life of meaning and satisfaction.
