Executive MBA in Indigenous Business & Leadership

Connecting contemporary and traditional knowledge

The SFU Executive MBA in Indigenous Business and Leadership (EMBA IBL) is the only accredited MBA program in North America addressed primarily at Indigenous business, economic development and governance. Designed for mid-career Indigenous and non-Indigenous professionals, participants are proven leaders who share a concern for economic development, Nation-building, and self-determination. The program includes the core concepts and knowledge covered in most MBA programs but recognizes that traditional knowledge plays a significant role in decision-making in Indigenous communities. Students can live anywhere and continue to work by attending intensive one or two week sessions in Vancouver over a period of two years.

Develop the tools to lead your organization, business or community in a good way.
