A peronalized experience in the heart of downtown Vancouver

Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University
Canadian MBA

We also push beyond the classic business education by incorporating subjects such as entrepreneurship, sustainability, and creativity. This exhilarating, immersive experience will be completed in just 12 months.


Cohort learning is an integral part of the SFU Beedie MBA. Our maximum class size of 55 students isn’t a random figure. We’ve tested it and know that a more personal, collegial approach lets you build stronger connections and get more from your MBA. You’ll learn with and from a diverse group of classmates from different countries and educational backgrounds. And smaller classes let your professors get to know you better and provide more personalized guidance. And it all takes place in the centre of Vancouver’s diverse, vibrant and entrepreneurial business community. Vancouver isn’t just about spectacular mountain and ocean vistas and our mild climate. It’s a gateway to the Asia-Pacific region and a centre of entrepreneurship in Canada and North America.


We are one of very few business schools to be accredited by both AACSB and EQUIS. This is a reflection of our outstanding classroom experience, world class research and strong connections with industry. Fewer than 1% of business schools worldwide share this honour.


We work hard to recruit the best students from around the world. We look for candidates who can perform at the highest level every day and make a commitment to collaborating with others, to bring out the best in their classmates and themselves. If this sounds like you, let’s talk.
