Beedie School of Business

Foundational Sponsor

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 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 3,800 undergraduate (BBA students) in Burnaby and Surrey
  • over 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 Ph.D.program

At Beedie, we build opportunities. For homeowners, for businesses, and for communities. Whether we’re creating an inclusive collection of homes or a new industrial business park, we blend innovation and careful craftsmanship to bring new possibilities to life.

And we’ve been doing it for a long time. Founded in 1954, we have steadily grown over the past six decades to become the largest private industrial land owner, developer and property manager in Western Canada. During that time, we’ve developed more than 21 million square feet of industrial space for businesses, built master-planned communities with meaningful benefits to residents, and amassed a 10 million square foot industrial portfolio. Our integrated structure allows us to oversee all aspects of development, providing a unique ability to infuse every phase of our projects with an exceptional focus on quality, safety and dynamic design.

While we’re inspired every day by the scale and scope of our work, we’ve even more proud of the positive impact we have on our communities. We understand that our work has meaning that goes beyond just the people who live or work in our buildings, and with a thoughtful vision, we can build real, lasting value.
