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.

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, in May, during a two-day event.

The first semester of the program, from January to April, features three days of Business Ethics courses, 12 evenings of Managing People & Organizations courses, and 12 evenings of Financial & Managerial Accounting courses. The summer semester, the second of the program, features 12 evenings of Sustainability courses and 12 evenings of Business Analytics courses.

The first fall semester features six evenings of Special Topics in Business courses, six evenings of Business and Indigenous Peoples courses, and 12 evenings of Managerial Finance courses. In addition, a three-day Business and Indigenous Communities experiential learning project occurs during the fall semester. A three-day Business Innovation and Creativity project occurs in the second spring semester, with 12 evenings of Marketing Management classes, and 12 evenings of Entrepreneurship classes.

The second summer semester features 12 evenings of Managing Information Systems classes, 12 evenings of Operations Management classes, and a three-day Negotiations project.
