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.
