who we are header


We are Beedie School of Business’ most explicit link to the professional world.

We collaborate with organizations and leaders seeking powerful ideas for driving their industries and communities forward, joining with them to design everything from short courses and workshops, to industry dialogues and corporate MBAs.

All of our initiatives confront mission-critical challenges—uncovering and strategizing opportunities to think differently. Drawing in experts from across disciplines and their evidence-based insights, we equip executives, managers, and practitioners for immediate and game-changing leadership and decision-making.

Today’s world is looking for answers. Together we will put ideas into action.



Located in a heritage building at the heart of downtown Vancouver, we are at the centre of a world-class environment for learning. We make it a priority to find learning spaces that in themselves create possibilities—from Whistler mountains or Kelowna wine country to the transformative concentric circles of the award-winning Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. All of our venues are carefully chosen to enrich every facet of the executive learning experience.


As organizational learning and development professionals, we believe that executive learning should address pressing issues while equipping participants with immediately applicable responses. To do this, we customize each learning engagement using applied and experiential methods that promise the greatest impact. A Beedie Executive Education experience might include business simulations, World Café conversations, self-assessments, group problem solving, action learning projects, panel presentations, coaching, and more—all blended with the most powerful traditional approaches.



A connection with us is a connection to a worldwide network. It begins with our team of professionals, with whom you engage directly to access or design the needed learning. Our programs and initiatives engage SFU faculty from across three campuses—recognized internationally for their applied and interdisciplinary research—as well as industry experts. Specialized topics are enriched by our national and international partners, including academic institutions, research centres, professional associations, and think tanks, all committed to realizing the opportunities of collaboration.
