SFU business school gains global kudos

Sep 02, 2011

From Business in Vancouver online, Wednesday, 31 August 2011 08:55 Two university studies place Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business as one of the world’s top 100 business and management research post-secondary institutions. China’s Shanghai Jiao Tong University ranked SFU’s business school in the top 75 on its 2011 academic ranking of the top 500 universities in the world, which was released earlier this month. That follows the SFU business school ranking No. 22 in management in the top 100 world rankings of business schools published by the University of Texas at Dallas. “These are significant accomplishments for our faculty and speak to our commitment to active participation in the global exchange of management ideas,” Daniel Shapiro, dean of SFU’s Beedie School, said in a release.
