Simon Fraser University, Beedie School of Business

EFMD Equis Accredited

Simon Fraser University and the Beedie School of Business have a relatively short but very busy history characterized by innovative people, research and programs. From its inception, the University has chosen not to follow traditional paths. Its history is characterized by the development of new programs and new structures that respond and adapt to changes in knowledge and the academic and broader environment. It is not afraid to try new ideas within a governance framework that emphasizes consultation, consensus and quality.

Since 1965, SFU has grown from a small newly established institution with a fresh mission and a local student base to a major Canadian university with an expanding presence in the global arena. SFU has campuses in Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey with a total student enrollment of more than 30,000; six faculties (eight in September 2009), 60 departments and schools, and 63 institutes and centres; and partnerships with more than 100 leading universities in 39 countries, including our first international dual-degree program in China.

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 as we deliver research and teaching that makes an impact. That we have achieved some measure of success is confirmed by our accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), and by receiving the EQUIS Quality award from the EFMD (European Federation for Management Development), globally recognized accrediting agencies for business schools. Less than 1% of business schools worldwide have earned both of these international accreditations.

Undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. programs demonstrate a spirit of innovation, 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 their communities.

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

  • over 3100 undergraduate BBA students in Burnaby and Surrey
  • over 250 MBA and graduate students in the new Segal Graduate School of Business
  • non-credit programs at the director, executive and management levels
  • a thriving Ph.D.program
