Sigma Beta Delta Induction Information

Sigma Beta Delta was established in 1994 to honor students who have demonstrated superior academic performance in business programs in regionally accredited universities and colleges. The Liberty University chapter was established in 1997. In 2009, juniors and graduate students were invited to join Sigma Beta Delta. Each year, the Liberty University chapter provides charitable contributions to numerous organizations, such the Jubilee Family Development Center, Interfaith Outreach Association, Christian Service Mission, WorldHelp, and No Barriers USA. In addition, the chapter sponsors scholarly events and activities that are available to residential and online students.

Membership Criteria

In order to join Sigma Beta Delta, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be a residential or online junior, senior, or graduate student.
  • You must have a declared major in the School of Business.
  • Your overall GPA must be in the top 20% of School of Business students.

Juniors are required to maintain their level of academic scholarship and characteristics that first earned them this prestigious honor.

Induction Process

Juniors, seniors, and graduate students who are eligible to join Sigma Beta Delta may do so for $150. Inductees will receive a certificate as well as other membership materials.

As a qualifying invitee, your name has been sent to the national office along with your Liberty email address.  Sigma Beta Delta will only use this information to verify your qualifications for becoming a member into the honor society.  In order to join, you must go to the honor society’s national website and follow the online instructions for becoming a member.  When completing the information, make sure to:

  1. Choose ‘Liberty University’ when asked the campus name
  2. To use your Liberty University email address as your ‘Invite ID’

Additional Information

Members will receive honor chords at the induction ceremony, held yearly on graduation weekend. Those who attend the ceremony will have their names entered into a drawing for some exciting giveaways.  At last year’s ceremony we were able to award three Microsoft Surface 3 computers.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to email or visit Sigma Beta Delta's website.
