About the Program
Get ready to achieve more
The SFU Beedie MBA takes an applied learning approach. Combining theory and application, our curriculum will give you a strong grounding in business fundamentals to help you take your career to the next level.
As part of a diverse, connected business community in Downtown Vancouver, you’ll also build valuable, long-lasting connections with classmates, faculty and the business community.
Be part of something great
Our maximum class size of 55 students isn’t a random figure. We’ve tested it and know that a more personal, collegial approach lets you build stronger connections and get more from your MBA. You’ll learn with and from a diverse group of classmates from different countries and educational backgrounds. And smaller classes let your professors get to know you better and provide more personalized guidance.
Gain real-world business insights
Our comprehensive and challenging curriculum incorporates real-world business challenges and explores relevant topics such as sustainability, new ventures and international business. You’ll graduate with a business management toolkit that applies across industries, providing you with more career options and mobility.
Make every day count
Your time is valuable. Instead of extended breaks between semesters, you'll participate in a cross-cultural experiential learning project and attend networking and other events. In addition to 20 hours per week in-class time, you’ll spend at least another 32 hours or so per week studying and working on projects and assignments.
Gain practical experience
At the end of the 12-month program, you can choose between undertaking a paid 4-month work term, starting your own new venture, or moving straight into a permanent position. Learning on the job in this way lets you make mistakes in a safe, supportive environment. In all cases, you deliver a report on your four months as part of your degree.
Are you the right fit?
We're looking for a special group of people with sharp minds and diverse backgrounds. As a part of the Beedie MBA cohort, you will be expected to perform at the highest level every day, and make a commitment to collaborating with others and bringing out the best in them.
