About SFU Beedie

One of Canada's leading business schools

Since the creation of Canada’s first Executive MBA in 1968, Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business has emerged as a dynamic teaching and learning setting with a reputation for producing global-class research for the knowledge economy.

We are based in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia—Canada’s Asia Pacific Gateway and a growing hub for international trade, entrepreneurship and technology.


    SFU has been named top comprehensive university in Canada in the 2023 Maclean’s rankings. The 2023 World University Rankings for Innovation (WURI), which measure how universities create value for society, placed SFU as the top university in Canada for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. It also placed SFU second in the world for entrepreneurial spirit.

    In 2022, Times Higher Education (THE) listed SFU as tied for the 8th top-ranked university in Canada. SFU is also ranked 8th in the world in THE’s 2021 Impact Rankings, which measure environmental, social and economic contributions to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
