miriamThe IUGB Foundation is delighted to announce that we have a second IUGB alumna who will receive a $1,000.00 scholarship from The Atlanta Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma. Beta Gamma Sigma is an international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International. Students are chosen by the faculty of their business schools to be invited to membership in the society. To be eligible for invitation, students must be a) enrolled in a business program at a school accredited by AACSB International that has a chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma; and b) be in the upper 10 percent of the junior class (second semester), upper 10 percent of the senior class, upper 20 percent of the graduating master’s class, or completed all requirements to achieve a doctorate.

In the Fall of 2017, Jean-Marcien Kablansi, another IUGB alumni, also received a $1,000 scholarship from the Atlanta Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma.

A current Beta Gamma Sigma (Atlanta Chapter) member, GSU incoming graduate student Mariam Fofana was awarded a $1,000 scholarship check to help her with her upcoming Master’s Program studies in Mathematical Risk Management. Mariam is an incoming Graduate Fall 2018 student. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Actuarial science with a 4.0 GPA and expects to graduate and receive her Master’s Degree in the Fall of 2019. Besides attending University, Mariam is also serving as the Head of Business Development and International Partnerships at the Young Job Network in Cote d’Ivoire.  Taking full advantage of local internship opportunities, Mariam worked with Porsche Cars North America (Finance and Accounting) and Meals on Wheels (Development and Accounting).

We are very proud of Mariam’s significant academic and career achievements, and we can’t wait to see what she does with her Master’s Degree in the future!
