The MBA That Puts You First

Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business has a heritage of innovation. We offered the first Executive MBA, the first Indigenous Business Leadership Executive MBA and the first Management of Technology MBA in Canada. We are among only 1% of business schools worldwide with dual accreditation by AACSB and EQUIS and we are ranked among Canada’s leading business schools.



You want to take your career to the next level. The SFU Beedie MBA will give you the edge you need to get there. By combining theory and application, the programme will give you a strong grounding in business fundamentals. The SFU Beedie School of Business prides itself on creating an innovative, student-centred and creative learning environment. We develop opportunities for students to effectively collaborate in impactful ways inside and outside the classroom. As you move through the 12-month academic component of the programme in the centre of Vancouver’s diverse, vibrant and entrepreneurial business community, expect to become immersed in deep, thought-probing questions and real-world business problems where you’ll learn through interactive and experiential learning methods. At the end of the 12 months of academics, you’ll put your knowledge into practice during the required 4-month work term. We are an engaged community of creative thinkers from diverse perspectives and backgrounds. With a typical class of just 50 students, the SFU Beedie MBA learning experience lets you discover your strengths and take risks in a supportive environment while working alongside faculty. Your classmates will become invaluable business connections and lifelong friends. You will graduate with a business management toolkit that applies across industries, providing you with more career options and greater mobility.
