Esteemed businessman, Michael McCain to be inducted with students into Beta Gamma Sigma

Published on June 09 2011

On Saturday, June 11, Brock University’s Faculty of Business will induct its honourary member into the distinguished Beta Gamma Sigma honour society that recognizes the top business students and practitioners in the world.


The Faculty will recognize Michael McCain, President and Chief Executive Officer of Maple Leaf Foods as a Chapter Honoree. The ceremony will take place from 1-3 p.m. at the David S. Howes Theatre at Brock University and will also induct 82 students into Beta Gamma Sigma.


Michael is being honoured for his outstanding achievements and distinguished leadership in business.  He will be receiving an honorary degree from Brock at the Convocation ceremony taking place earlier the same day.


"We are thrilled to induct this year’s honourary member into the Beta Gamma Sigma honour society," said Philip Kitchen, Dean of Brock University’s Faculty of Business. "It’s a true pleasure to recognize Michael for his achievements and contributions toward growth within the business community."


Beta Gamma Sigma, with over 400 chapters worldwide, acknowledges academic achievement in the study of business and fosters personal and professional excellence in the practice of business.


Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Brock University received accreditation to AACSB in 2003, joining top international business schools, and in 2004 established its own chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma. 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.
