Study Abroad

Ali Dastmalchian, Dean of the Beedie School of Business has a special message about the international opportunities you can take advantage of and why this will benefit you now and in your future career.


Be Global | Why limit your learning based on geographical borders? Expand your studies abroad with the Beedie School of Business. We’ve teamed up with over 40 top business schools around the world to provide you with a life–changing educational opportunity. Choose from international exchange (1 to 3 terms abroad), summer exchange (4–6 weeks abroad), field schools (3-8 weeks abroad), on campus opportunities, and the International Experiential Learning Certificate

International Exchange

Spend one, two, or three semesters studying at an institution abroad, all while earning credit towards your BBA degree and paying SFU Arts tuition. International exchange is a great opportunity to travel, gain a global business perspective, meet new friends, and experience a different culture.

Start planning your international exchange experience, click here for more information. Application deadlines are:

  • January 25 (for the following Summer, Fall, and Spring terms)
  • May 25 (for the remaining Spring spaces) of each year

Short–Term Summer Exchanges

A number of SFU’s partner exchange universities offer short-term Summer Exchange programs. Summer Exchange programs are similar to a mini-exchange with a duration of 4 weeks to 6 weeks. This program combines academic coursework with cultural and local experiences. Students generally transfer back 6 SFU units. Summer exchange programs offer the ability to earn units towards your degree while still leaving some of your Summer term free. This is a great option for students nearing the end of their degree with not many credits left.

On-campus Opportunities

Take advantage of global opportunities right here at the Burnaby campus at SFU! The Beedie School of Business offers programs in collaboration with our international Beedie Business Partners that allow you to BE Global at SFU while earning credits towards your degree.

Field School

A field school can be described as an extended field trip, group study tour, or an off–campus delivery of SFU’s courses for a group of 12 – 20 students. Each field school is directed by an SFU instructor, consists of 9 to 12 units of coursework delivered through lectures, assignments, and field studies beginning at a SFU campus then traveling overseas to one or more locations. Tuition, shared accommodation, basic health insurance, field excursions and, in most cases return airfare to Vancouver is included in the cost. Information about specific field school opportunities is posted here when available.

International Experiential Learning Certificate

The International Experiential Learning Certificate provides students within the Beedie School of Business with a broad exposure to the global business environment. The certificate is earned through a combination of international activities, language acquisition and the study of a course related to the socio–economic and/or cultural environment in which the international activities will take place.
