BSG provides an interdisciplinary platform for faculty, business professionals, and students (undergraduate and graduate) to promote and encourage scholarship and superior teaching of issues regarding business, society, and government in colleges and universities. Our greatest value is the active feedback of your peers in a collegial environment.

For the first time in its history, MBAA and the BSG Consortium will also be accepting poster presentations. BSG is thrilled to announce that in 2018, we will have openings for student research papers and a cash prize at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The sponsoring professor must be a member of the BSG Consortium.

Topics related to disciplines associated with Business, Society, and Government are welcomed. These may include (but are not limited to): Regulatory Processes, Globalization, Environmentalism, Consumerism, Workplace Issues, Civil Rights, Corporate Governance, Ethics and Social Responsibility, International Business, Business Communications, Operations Management, Human Resources Management, Management, Economics, Accounting, Information Systems, Public Relations, Entrepreneurship, Business Case Studies, Industrial Psychology, Non-profits, Technology in the workplace, Public Administration and pedagogical studies.

Registering at the MBAA International Conference with the BSG Consortium as your primary group ensures your annual membership in the BSG Consortium without additional dues payment. Otherwise, regular membership dues are $25 and student memberships are $15.
