 SFU BUSINESS GRADUATE PROGRAMS
SFU Business is a business school with a history of doing things differently. The needs of the local, national and international business community guide our decisions in research, business programs and community outreach.

SFU Business began delivering management education with the launch of Canada's first Executive MBA program more than 40 years ago, and we've continued to expand and tailor our program offerings to reflect changes in the business environment. One thing has remained the same: our commitment to provide the best learning experience possible.
The Segal Graduate School of Business western Canada's first dedicated centre for graduate business education opened in 2005 in the heart of downtown Vancouver's business district. The location is a distinctive venue for scholars, students, business and industry leaders to convene, teach, learn and explore the latest management concepts. It houses all of SFU Business graduate studies programs as well as specialized research centres:
The CMA Centre for Strategic Change and Performance Measurement
The CIBC Centre for Corporate Governance and Risk Management
The Centre for Biotechnology Management
 

MBA programs
Graduate programs at SFU Business are unique. Most business schools offer only one MBA program with multiple specialist streams following the basic coursework. We instead provide individual programs tailored for separate markets, with each program offered on a cohort model. This enables us to tailor every course to the specific population served, resulting in a more satisfying student experience delivered in smaller class sizes to cohesive groups.

MBA

The MBA program is designed for students with undergraduate degrees in areas other than Business and five years or less of professional work experience. The two-year curriculum is condensed into 12 months of intensive course work, designed to provide students with a broad portfolio of skills as they start their careers. A paid internship at the end of the program creates a chance to acquire essential work experience and facilitates a smooth transition into the workplace.

An optional international field study trip explores cultural differences and challenges of operating on a global scale.

MBA in Management of Technology | Biotechnology

The Management of Technology / Biotechnology MBA (MOT MBA) program covers the breadth of the business disciplines, but is unique in its focus on managing the business opportunities and challenges faced by technology and biotechnology firms. It is designed to enable technically-oriented professionals to identify strategic business opportunities and manage them successfully.

The MOT MBA is offered over two-years, as a part-time program with classes held two nights a week. The curriculum brings together theory and practice in managing innovation with an entrepreneurial mindset. To complement the academic theory learned in the classroom, business executives are invited to provide a global outlook and to discuss the realities within their organizations and their strategies to manage these realities. In addition, throughout the MOT MBA program, students complete assignments which relate directly to their organization. The application of classroom learning in the workplace is an essential element of our learning environment.

Tuition: $31, 000 CDN. http://www.sfu.ca


Executive MBA
 
The EMBA is based on a cohort model, so students spend the entire 19-month program with classmates whose business, cultural, and life experiences add immeasurably to each other's education. Students continue to work full-time while attending classes every other Friday and Saturday. To encourage group collaboration on assignments and projects, students are provided accommodations at a nearby downtown hotel on the Friday nights they have classes.
There is also an opportunity for students to add an international field trip component to their studies. This optional tour examines the significant cultural, political, legal and economic differences between Canadian firms and their counterparts around the world.

Tuition: $47, 500 CDN. http://www.sfu.ca
