Undergraduates

Business Honours

Excel in your studies so that you take more away from your undergraduate degree. Students who challenge themselves to maintain high academic standings are provided with further opportunities to bolster their resumes and become more competitive in the job market. Exceed expectations by completing a Business Honours degree.

A Business Honours degree consists of 132 units (12 units more than a traditional Business degree). Business Major students may be eligible for a variety of Honours programs offered through SFU Beedie School of Business. For more details on the Honours programs available, please see the checklists below and refer to the SFU Calendar.

  • 15 units of upper division coursework in Business

Please note that application to the Honours program occurs one term prior to the actual admission term (e.g. if you are applying in Spring 2016 (1161), your admission to the Honours program would be for Summer 2016 (1164) and your program requirements would be those listed in the Summer 2016 (1164) SFU Calendar).

If you wish to be admitted to the Honours program with an Accounting concentration, you must first declare your area of concentration. In order to declare an Accounting concentration, you must apply for formal admission to the Accounting concentration.

Before submitting an Honours Program application, it is recommend that students consult with an Academic Advisor to review the full requirements of the program.

*Please be aware that all concentrations noted on the application form will be added to a student's record (if accepted into the Honours Program).

The flexibility SFU Beedie offers enabled me to combine my interests in my joint major in international business and economics, but also offered so much through experiential learning and opportunities to get involved. There is so much that the time passes very quickly, so it’s important to make the most of it while you can.
