Sigma Beta Delta honors students with superior records in business programs in colleges and universities with regional accreditation.

“It’s our pleasure to recognize these outstanding students with a special designation,” said Dr. Jeff Fawcett, dean of the School of Business at Grace College. “Their membership in Sigma Beta Delta signifies the diligence they brought to their studies at Grace, and it serves as an indicator to future employers of the students’ caliber,” he said.
The Grace College School of Business strives to create an experiential learning environment that inspires students to embrace biblically based ethical character, develop professional competence, and demonstrate active service where they live and work. With 15 different majors – including agribusiness new this fall – the School of Business provides preparation for entry into a variety of business occupations as well as a foundation for graduate study.
