Congratulations to MBA student Chad Daavettila, the newest inductee to the Michigan Tech chapters of Beta Gamma Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi.
Other MBA students have previously been honored with these awards. Tanya Sickels was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, and Matt Mlinar has been honored with Phi Kappa Phi membership.
Beta Gamma Sigma is the honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International. This is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an AACSB undergraduate or master’s program. This invitation is offered to students ranking in the top 10 percent of the baccalaureate and top 20 percent of graduate programs at schools. Members receive many benefits, including a members-only job board and access to an alumni network, partnerships, and society benefits. Co-advisors for the Michigan Tech chapter are Drs. Chelley Vician and Mari Buche from the School of Business and Economics.
Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society. Membership is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students, and 7.5 percent of juniors. Faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction also qualify. Member benefits include career counseling, job connections, networking, society services, partnerships, awards, grants, and fellowships. Dr. Paul Nelson is the president of the Michigan Tech chapter of Phi Kappa Phi.
