COVID-19 FAQ

If you aren't sure about how the preventive measures against COVID-19 might change the application process to SFU Beedie School of Business, these are some of the most common questions we receive. We'll keep on adding to this page as necessary. If you do not see the answer to your question, please contact us at bsbar@sfu.ca.

General Questions

Yes, the Segal Graduate School is reviewing applications and making offers of admission on a continuous basis. We are working closely with students who are experiencing challenges completing their admission requirements due to COVID-19 and will continue to do so. Please review the specific program pages for application deadlines. 

Yes, the Fall 2020 term will start as scheduled. While it is too early to confirm what the term could look like, we want to reassure you that we are using this time to prepare various contingency plans and ensure that we will be in a position to deliver our programs in whatever scenario unfolds.

If the current situation causes delays or restricts in-person classes as we approach the beginning of the term, we will be prepared with online program delivery options until we are able to conduct in-person sessions. Please continue to check your email and our website for updates.

SFU Beedie has more than 20 years of experience in online business education. Our Graduate Diploma in Business Administration program has been delivered entirely online since 1999, and during that time we have developed a sophisticated online learning environment and instructors who are highly skilled in teaching remotely should this be required. We are well-positioned to adapt to the current challenges as needed and provide our students with the best possible business education and learning experience. We have already shifted away from in person classes to online program delivery for current students across all our programs.

Beedie will continue to provide an enhanced virtual learning experience for all of our graduate students as a response to our classes moving online to ensure we are following the provincial health restrictions and keeping everyone safe. Students continue engaging in synchronous classes to learn with their cohort, and benefit from our 50 years of graduate education experience, world-class faculty, accreditations, strong alumni base, and the small cohort-based experience.

  • Events are moving ahead as planned (in a virtual setting rather than in-person), such as webinars, speaker events, and interactive workshops.
  • Our active SFU Beedie student clubs are still working hard to offer virtual educational and social events across Graduate Programs.
  • Case competitions & training are still being planned and facilitated in virtual settings; the next Graduate Case Competition Training Program will take place in Fall 2020 on Wednesday evenings.
  • An SFU Beedie Virtual Campus will be launched shortly, hosted within Canvas (our learning management system). The Virtual Campus will be a resource and sharing hub, as well as a space to host events, to keep our graduate student community connected during social distancing.
  • Our Career Management Centre is also offering virtual career advising, networking opportunities, company tours and speaker series all online!
