Honors and Awards

Alpha Sigma Lambda. Honor society for evening students.

Athenaeum. The members of Athenaeum, the honor society of the college, are elected from the best scholars in the junior and senior classes.

Beta Alpha Psi. Honor society for students of accounting, finance, and information systems. By invitation only.

Beta Gamma Sigma. International honor society recognizing the academic achievements of students enrolled in business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. By invitation only.

Business Leader Development Program (BLDP). The BLDP provides recognition for exceptional leadership activities during a student's time at the School of Business-Camden. Our goal is to identify "high-potential" students, who are then eligible for special seminar classes and a variety of other opportunities. Individuals who demonstrate ongoing leadership, both in and outside the school (accumulated and verified as "leadership units"), receive recognition at graduation and a notation of program completion under "Honors" on their transcript.

Dean's List. The dean's list recognizes current academic achievement. The list is published at the end of each semester for full-time students and in August for part-time students. Full-time students are eligible if they have completed 12 or more credits for numerical grade credit with a semester grade-point average of 3.5 or better. Part-time students are eligible if they have completed 12 or more credits during the preceding academic year for numerical grade credit with a grade-point average of 3.5 or better.

Honors Thesis Option. School of Business-Camden students with a grade-point average of 3.3 or above may be eligible to undertake an honors thesis. This involves in-depth study in the student's major area under the supervision of a faculty thesis adviser. This project usually is carried out during the student's two senior semesters. The student who completes an acceptable honors thesis receives 6 course credits and graduates with "Thesis Distinction."

The thesis must involve the comprehension of academic literature, data collection, or a systematic theoretical analysis, and the writing of an academic research paper. The thesis must be approved by both the student's thesis adviser and a second School of Business faculty member. In addition, all honors thesis students must give a presentation on the results of their projects to the faculty and students.

Mu Kappa Tau. National Marketing Honor Society. By invitation of the marketing faculty to qualified marketing majors who have demonstrated academic excellence.
