Beedie School of Business – Simon Fraser University - Part-Time MBA
Beedie School of Business Part-Time MBA Program Structure
The 24-month Simon Fraser part-time MBA program, unlike the other programs at the Segal Graduate School of Business, is held at the Surrey, Canada campus. The program is designed much like the full-time program, aside from the internship conclusion of the program, only extended from 12 to 24 months. The maximum class size is 50 students.
After completing the required “refresher” courses, students officially begin the program in December at a one-night on-campus event, meeting with other students and faculty members. Students from the Graduate Diploma in Business Administration program are introduced the following semester.
The first semester of the program, from January to April, includes Business Ethics courses, 12 evenings of Managing People & Organizations courses, and 12 evenings of Financial & Managerial Accounting courses. The summer semester encompasses Special Topics in Business, Indigenous Business Environments, and Business Analytics classes. The first fall semester features courses in Sustainability and Managerial Finance.
The second summer semester includes 12 evenings of Managing Information Systems classes, 12 evenings of Operations Management classes, and a three-day Negotiations project. The final fall semester features 12 evenings of Managerial Economics classes, 12 evenings of Business Strategy classes, and the final three-day Leading Self and Others project.
Fifty students are enrolled in the part-time Simon Fraser Beedie MBA class. These students are, on average, 35-years old, have 12 years worth of work experience, four years of management experience, and a GMAT of 600. Forty-four percent of the class is female, 56% of the class is male.
Career resources are available through the Career Resource Centre and the university’s vast network of international alumni.
