There are three key areas where your support is needed most:
Developing financial support for business students at the graduate level is currently a key development priority and critical to our future success. Entrance scholarships can help support qualified individuals who may be putting off this kind of educational opportunity for financial reasons, and can help to recruit a more diverse and exceptional cohort of students. At the Beedie School of Business, the entire amount you contribute is directed toward the student award winner, and not toward administrative costs. Endowed scholarships generate a lasting legacy of support through the interest generated on the gift, while annual awards help fill an immediate need.
Endowed Scholarship: $30,000 or more will establish a named endowment fund that will continue to grow and support our students in perpetuity.
Annual Award: An annual contribution of $1,000 or more for a minimum three-year term will establish an annual award.
Annual sponsorship of $2,000 - $15,000
Building on the success of SFU’s Executive MBA program - the first of its kind in Canada when introduced in 1968 - the Beedie School of Business launched the EMBA in Aboriginal Business and Leadership in 2011. This program has been developed in response to the needs of First Nations leaders and communities who require enhanced business and leadership skills in order to build their capacity and self-reliance. The EMBA in Aboriginal Business and Leadership program includes the core concepts and knowledge included in most MBA programs, but recognizes that traditional knowledge also plays a significant role in Aboriginal leadership and decision making.
Student financial support: $5,000 - $225,000
