  • Karly Chambers learns important business lessons at global summit in Chicago
    Karly Chambers

    Karly Chambers, a senior accounting major from El Dorado, Arkansas, learned some valuable lessons about herself and picked up some new skills to be applied to her future career goals by attending Beta Gamma Sigma’s Global Leadership Summit in Chicago.

    Her experiences in the Rankin College of Business at SAU inspired her to attend the summit, which gathers some of the highest-achieving students from business schools around the world for a unique learning experience.
    Beta Gamma Sigma is an honors society for business schools that, like the Rankin College, are AACSB accredited. BGS hosts the summit annually, allowing students the opportunity to build their skills, network, hear inspirational business leaders, and meet successful entrepreneurs.
