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. We are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and have received the EQUIS Quality award from the European Federation for Management Development (EFMD). AACSB and EFMD are globally recognized accrediting agencies for business schools. Less than 1% of business schools worldwide have earned both of these accreditations.

Undergraduate, graduate and PhD 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:

  • 3,800+ undergraduate (BBA students) in Burnaby and Surrey
  • 700+ MBA and graduate students at the Segal Graduate School and at the Surrey Campus
  • Non-credit programs at the director, executive and management-levels
  • A thriving PhD program

The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. It works:

to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors;
to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.
The PRI acts in the long-term interests:

of its signatories;
of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.
The PRI is truly independent. It encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks, but does not operate for its own profit; it engages with global policymakers but is not associated with any government; it is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.
