Beedie School of Business

Since the creation of Canada's first Executive MBA in 1968, the Beedie School of Business has championed lifelong learning, productive change and the need to be innovative in research and teaching. Our measure of success is further confirmed through accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and by receiving the EQUIS Quality award from the European Federation for Management Development (EFMD). Less than one percent of business schools worldwide have earned both of these international accreditations.

Undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. programs demonstrate flexibility and relevance. Supported by extensive partnerships with public, private and not-for-profit organizations, our goal is to produce broadly educated, enterprising and socially responsible managers capable of making lasting contributions to society.

In recognition of a record $22 million gift from alumnus Ryan Beedie and his father Keith, the school was renamed from the Faculty of Business Administration to the Beedie School of Business in 2011.

The Beedie School of Business operates on all three SFU campuses, with:

  • more than 3,800 undergraduate (BBA students) in Burnaby and Surrey
  • more than 700 MBA and graduate students at the Segal Graduate School (Vancouver) and at the Surrey campus
  • non-credit programs at the director, executive and management levels
  • a thriving PhD program
