SFU launches new MBA Program

Jun 24, 2013 by

Simon Fraser University’s Beedie School of Business is very pleased to announce that it has launched an MBA program at the SFU Surrey campus. Designed to meet the needs of a growing number of managers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders seeking to enhance their business skill set without skipping a beat in their professional careers, the part-time MBA at Surrey features the same curriculum as SFU’s full-time MBA offered in Vancouver, and is taught by leading faculty from the Beedie School of Business.

Beedie’s part-time MBA at Surrey combines theory and application to provide students with the confidence and ability to make decisions and manage more effectively. It’s all about engagement – from a classroom experience that engages and challenges students to make informed and creative decisions – to the projects and events that have the students engaging with the business and non-profit community on a regular basis.

Students learn the most current and innovative management knowledge and skills – techniques that can be applied in the workplace immediately, but that will remain relevant throughout their career. The program’s comprehensive curriculum explores relevant topics such as sustainability, entrepreneurship and international business.

Beginning in January 2014, Beedie’s part-time MBA at Surrey is offered continuously over 24 months. Classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, in conjunction with a handful of full-day intensive sessions per year. The program will be hosted at SFU’s award-winning Surrey campus, designed by acclaimed architect Bing Thom and located adjacent to the Surrey Central SkyTrain station.

“The implementation of the Beedie School of Business’ part-time MBA program provides the City of Surrey’s growing business community a new opportunity for growth and progression, as well as reflects Simon Fraser University’s dedication to our City,” said Dianne Watts, Mayor of the City of Surrey.

“The astonishing amount of new businesses that have started up in the City of Surrey over the past six years, over 13,000, is a testament to the spirit of ingenuity and hard work that resides here, making the establishment of the part-time MBA program a perfect fit.”
