Alpha Beta Gamma is an international business honor society established in 1970 to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students in business curricula. To achieve this goal, Alpha Beta Gamma provides leadership opportunities, forums for the exchange of ideas, and the stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence. Since its founding, more than 65,500 students from accredited community, junior, and technical colleges have been initiated into the society. Alpha Beta Gamma is a member of both the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).

Alpha Beta Gamma International Business Honor Society is the sole business honor society for accredited junior, community and technical two-year colleges. The society exists to recognize and reward academic excellence among business honor students and to recognize the contribution to learning and business of professionals. Membership in the society is open to qualified candidates, including people with disabilities, without regard to age, color, sex, national origin, race, religion, and/or sexual orientation. In 1998 the constitution was amended to accept business honor students from Mexico and Canada.

The society is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), is a participating institute in the Association of Canadian Community College (ACCC) Affiliates Network (Membre participant au Reseau d’Affilies Internationaux de L'ACCC), and educational affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). Alpha Beta Gamma is also a member of the Association of Small Foundations (ASF). The society was founded in 1970 and currently has more than 65,000 members.

That academic excellence among community, junior, and technical college students enrolled in business curricula may be nurtured, that opportunity may be provided for leadership training and an intellectual climate for ideas and ideals be fostered; and that scholars may be imbued with desire for continuing education, we dedicate ourselves as members of Alpha Beta Gamma. Among us, membership is a privilege earned by qualifications, honor, and service. In the conduct of our activities, truth shall be our quest, diligence our staff, and achievement our purpose.
