Professor Tam Kar Yan

President, Beta Gamma Sigma HKUST Chapter 
Dean, School of Business and Management

It is my great honor to be the President of the Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) HKUST Chapter. BGS presents a symbol of high principles and superior achievement. I am delighted that since its inception in 2000, the BGS HKUST Chapter has steadily grown into a network of over 2,000 high achievers that unites top students, graduates, faculty and distinguished leaders of the community.

Each year we welcome a new group of elite students, faculty, professionals and business leaders to connect with this “Best in Business” network. This year I am pleased to welcome 118 newly inducted members to join this prestigious society that recognizes academic excellence and provides opportunities for interaction with a wider community.

As a new member, you are encouraged to not only take full advantage of the BGS global network, but actively participate in activities arranged by our local chapter. For instance, you will be invited to our BizInsight Presentation Series Seminars, where our faculty and/ or industry practitioners will share insights on topical issues. These talks allow students and other participants to see for themselves how the School, through its cutting-edge research, forges closer business-academia ties and inspires business executives.

My warmest congratulations again to our newly inducted honorees and members of the Beta Gamma Sigma HKUST Chapter. We will continue to extend the reach and network of our local BGS Chapter and foster exchanges among its members and with the business community.
