Business Career Passport

Career Passport

Business Career Passport (BCP) is a mandatory program for Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) major students to kick-start their career.

  • Students admitted to the BBA major in and after Fall (September) 2017 are required to complete a series of six workshops within 12 months of admission to the Beedie School of Business.
  • Students admitted to the BBA major between Fall (September) 2012 – Summer (August) 2017 must complete the program prior to graduation.

BCP is graded on a complete/incomplete basis. To receive the complete credit for each of the workshops students are required to:

  1. Sign-up for the workshops on Beedie Community under events.
  2. Complete BCP SFU Canvas Online components of the workshop
  3. Attend the in-person workshop on campus
  4. Complete an online deliverable post-workshop

Once the complete credit is awarded, the credit will appear on the SFU transcript.

Starting Fall 2017 students taking BUS 201 Introduction to Business can complete 3 of the workshops as part of the BUS 201 course component. Students will need to sign-up and complete the remainder of the workshops through Beedie Community outside of class time. Workshops completed through BUS 201 include: Self-Assessment & Finding Your Fit, Job Search Strategies & Career Management, and Competitive Cover Letters.

Starting Fall 2017 students taking BUS 202 Foundations for Collaborative Work Environments can complete 1 of the workshops as part of the BUS 202 course component. Students will need to sign-up and complete the remainder of the workshops through Beedie Community outside of class time. Workshop completed through BUS 202 is Self-Assessment & Finding Your Fit.
