Strong Academic Performance
You have been invited to apply through the online, supplemental application because you currently have a Business Admission GPA in a range that suggests you may be well qualified for admission to SFU Beedie School of Business.
While we want to learn more about you through the supplemental application, your marks still matter. The required courses that you complete for admission demonstrate your preparedness in the field of Business through both Business-specific and corresponding, preparatory courses.
If your current Business Admission GPA includes courses that are in-progress, make sure to keep your grades up. We review all offers of admission upon receipt of final grades for the following criteria:
- Successfully complete all required courses with a C- minimum.
- Maintain a competitive admission average of 2.80 or better.
Activities and Achievements
Your application should demonstrate experience(s) in one or more of the following areas:
- Arts (performing, visual, music, and/or written)
- Community leadership and/or involvement
- Work experience
- Other areas
Strong Communication Skills
As part of SFU Beedie's undergraduate learning goals, students should develop strong communication skills (oral, listening and written). Make sure to practice and refine these skills through your required courses, such as English, Philosophy or World Literature, as well as through any additional support services that your institution may offer, such as interview support (ex. Career Services), public speaking workshops (ex. Toastmasters), and writing strategy support. During your application, you will be asked to demonstrate your communication skills both orally and in writing.
You will need to provide contact information for two referees (i.e. people who provide a reference). Make sure to pick referees who can comment about the experiences that you list in your application, including your academics, extra-curricular activities, work and personal achievements, as well as personal qualities.
NOTE: One reference must be from an instructor at your college or university.
