Inbound Exchange

Interested in coming to Vancouver, Canada to study at SFU Beedie School of Business? First, find out if your home institution has an exchange/study abroad agreement with us by checking the Preferred Business Partners list.

If your school is listed, and you’re completing a major in business there, you must take at least three courses at SFU Beedie. All tuition should be paid at your home institution. Once we’ve accepted your application, our Study Abroad Advisor will be in touch and help you enroll in your courses.

Please note that the courses we offer vary from semester to semester, and your access to specific courses isn’t guaranteed. Final course outlines are typically available to students in the first week of the semester. You might find it useful to browse the outlines for previous semesters’ courses. However, bear in mind that previous content and texts may not be relevant to the courses you’re applying for. Use these older outlines as guidelines only. For more information, contact the Study Abroad Advisor at excredit_bsb@sfu.ca.

We recommend that students coming for exchange and study abroad take three to four classes (equal to nine to 12 units).

Your home institution might require you to take more classes and/or units (credits) than we recommend. Please ensure that you are meeting or exceeding your home institution's requirements, in addition to SFU Beedie’s requirements, while on your exchange/study abroad.

If you need to change your courses, please contact studyabroad_bsb@sfu.ca. We’ll be glad to help.
