Business Certificates

Be Challenged | Advance your education by adding a certificate to your CV. The Beedie School of Business offers Business Major and Business Joint Major students the opportunity to tailor their studies even further with one or more Business Certificate programs. Learn more about each certificate below or through the SFU Calendar.

Note: Courses can only be applied toward a single certificate as per the SFU Calendar. Students are not permitted to double count certificate courses towards multiple certificates. If a student is pursuing multiple certificates and there is overlap in courses, the student must choose which certificate to complete. For example, BUS 362, BUS 462, and BUS 464 are overlapping requirements for both the BADM and BTM certificates. As such, students may not apply these courses towards both certificates.
