Advisory Boards

SFU’s Beedie School of Business has several advisory boards, with the SFU Beedie Advisory Board (BAB) providing overall strategic-level feedback. Our Student Investment Advisory Service (SIAS) fund and Beedie Endowment Asset Management (BEAM) fund have boards whose members serve as mentors and advisors and also provide direct feedback on their respective portfolio’s performance.

SFU Beedie Advisory Board

The purpose of the SFU Beedie School of Business Advisory Board (BAB) is to help further the mission and calling of the SFU Beedie School of Business. It acts as a supportive and visible body of leadership, influence and guiding force within the constituencies the SFU Beedie School of Business serves. The board provides a link to those individuals and organizations with the resources, knowledge, and contacts the school requires to achieve its objectives and enact its calling.

The board serves five main functions:

  • To advise the school, through the dean, on issues that have the most significant impact on the accomplishment of the school’s mission, calling, and strategy.
  • To communicate, endorse and advocate the school’s interests to external constituencies – nationally and internationally.
  • To support and connect the school’s goals, programs, centres, departments, faculty, students and staff to the community, locally, nationally and internationally.
  • To assist the school in meeting its financial advancement objectives, through direct participation in the identification and cultivation of significant forms of support from individuals and organizations within its principal constituencies.
  • To serve as a confidential sounding board to the dean on issues pertaining to the advancement of the school and the achievement of its vision and calling.

The SFU Beedie School of Business Advisory Board meets each June in Greater Vancouver, BC.
