Management of Technology MBA



This is a part-time, in-person program in Vancouver, Canada; unfortunately, international students are not eligible to apply.

No matter where you see yourself after you graduate, the MOT MBA can help you get there faster.

Learn by doing

Designed for your life

We designed the MOT MBA for professionals with demanding full-time jobs. While the curriculum moves quickly, the workload is manageable. Starting in September, classes are two evenings a week (Mondays and Thursdays) with two additional three-day intensive classes per year.

Tailored to tech

The Industry Consulting Project gives you the opportunity to visit and work with Vancouver’s tech game-changers to learn about their corporate culture and hear firsthand from their senior representatives.

Intensive and experiential

Throughout the MOT MBA, you’ll attend intensive courses covering topics like negotiation, ethics and managing organizational relationships. Cases and projects bring leading-edge business theory to life, enabling you to apply what you learn to your own career.


We encourage our MOT MBA candidates to participate in extracurricular activities offered at SFU Beedie. After all, what you learn in the classroom could change your thinking, but what you learn outside the classroom could change your life. You can also take advantage of the opportunities available and tap into a vibrant network of industry leaders.

Case competitions and MBA Games

Case competitions—a program highlight—let you solve real-world business challenges as you compete with other MBAs. Each year, up to 40 SFU Beedie students compete in the MBA games in finance, marketing, strategy and more.

Guest speakers and events

SFU Beedie is a vital part of Vancouver’s tech industry. Our strong industry connections mean you’ll have the opportunity to hear from innovators in the classroom and at exclusive events.

Our cohort method

Unlike many MBA programs with more than 100 students in a cohort, in our MOT MBA program, you’ll get to know your fellow candidates well. Faculty members don’t just get to know your name, they also get to know your strengths and weaknesses, so you’ll get a more personalized experience.

You’ll have countless opportunities to work in teams, engage with your cohort and strengthen your professional relationships. In fact, your MOT MBA network could last throughout your entire career.

The comprehensive simulations provided the greatest learning for me. They helped change my mindset and connect the different areas of learning into a comprehensive view of how an organization runs.

My key lessons from the program were learning how to effectively frame and structure a problem or situation, manage a tight schedule, know what to prioritize and how to prioritize it, and identify core problems quickly and addressing them.

Bobbie Dhillon, EMBA

The MSc Finance program gave me the technical foundation that I couldn’t function without. I work with clients in very senior roles, and it’s important to demonstrate your technical knowledge to gain their trust.

I always saw myself working beyond clinical pharmacy. I felt that I could also shine on the business side of healthcare. I knew that with my strong clinical training an MBA would help open more doors and give me the mobility I was looking for in my career.

The Part-Time MBA was excellent. It gave me exactly what I expected to receive, and I think that is the highest compliment you can pay a program. It met all my expectations and provided a solid grounding in business skills and strategies.

Oliver Zihlmann, PT MBA

Director of Development and Alumni Engagement

UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences

The i2I program is perfect for people like me who are deeply involved in science, and who want to look for opportunities in the business world. A program like this opens your mind and teaches you that there is another world of possibilities outside of the lab.

Elena Groppa, i2I

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Faculty of Medicine

University of British Columbia Biomedical Research Centre

The learners I work with are 95% Indigenous, and I find that they become more interested and retain information more, when we speak and learn from an Indigenous lens. The Indigenous content integrated into the program has been very beneficial to me in terms of how I can incorporate Indigenous information into the curriculum I currently teach.
