Support Our Students

Enhancing the student experience at the Beedie School of Business will always be our top priority. Your contribution to the initiatives listed below will have a direct and significant impact on the lives of our students. The kinds of student support initiatives you can establish include scholarships, bursaries, and support for program development, student exchanges, or case competitions. 

There are three key areas where your support is needed most:

Graduate Entrance Scholarships

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.

Support needed:

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.

Undergraduate Business Case Competitions


Our undergraduate students are offered the opportunity to participate in numerous national and internationally recognized business case competitions. These competitions allow students to test and hone their business skills against some of the best business schools in the world and add tremendously to the student experience. Individual benefactors or companies who sponsor one of these competition teams will have the opportunity to meet the team and receive regular updates on their success. Additionally, every single dollar contributed will be applied toward the cost of supporting this particular student experience.  

Support needed:

Annual sponsorship of $2,000 - $15,000

Executive MBA in Aboriginal Business & Leadership

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. 

Support needed:

Student financial support: $5,000 - $225,000
