Not everyone can press pause on their career. The SFU Beedie PT MBA is designed for working professionals in the Metro Vancouver Regional District. Over 24 months, you’ll progress through the program with a small, diverse cohort of fellow professionals who all bring different perspectives to the table.
Instead of taking a career break, you attend classes two nights a week and apply what you learn the next day. It’s a transformative experience that starts pushing your career forward from day one.
The 24-month SFU Beedie PT MBA is ideal if you’re a full-time working professional in the early- to mid-stage of your career. You’re ready to learn more and develop new knowledge and skills, without taking a career break. And you’re willing to commit to evening studies at our breathtaking Surrey campus and on a weekend session each semester..
What you’ll learn
The PT MBA curriculum consists of innovative and unique courses—everything from Indigenous perspectives to sustainability. You’ll learn through case studies that give you a deeper understanding of the real-world challenges facing businesses of all types. Simulations let you take the hypothetical role of a decision-maker so you have the opportunity to evaluate business challenges from different angles.
Where it can take you
The program enables you to progress in your career or develop the skills to change paths entirely, while you keep working. The curriculum combines theory and application, enabling you to build your confidence and make effective management decisions.
Study and learn, without taking a career break. The PT MBA encourages knowledge transfer from class, to work, and back again. Bring your real-world business challenges into the classroom, and find out what your instructors and peers would do.
Most of your evenings and weekends will be free to help you maintain your work/study/life balance.
