The 12 Month SFU Full-time MBA program at Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University is focused on strategic management and working as a leader/contributor. The curriculum packs in the equivalent of 18-24 months of traditional MBA program by cutting out the breaks between terms, normally seen in 2 year programs.
The SFU MBA program starts with the Fall Semester, when students develop the Fundamentals of Business Education - Professional Decision Making: Ethical and Analytical Perspectives, Managerial Economics, Managing People, Finance and Accounting. The Summer Semester builds on the foundational knowledge with courses like Marketing, MIS, Negotiation, Leadership and Groups, Managing Global Enterprises and Managing a Globalized Workforce.
After the Summer Semester, SFU MBA students can opt for an International Study Trip (optional), which provides them with the skills required to work in a globalized work environment. After the study trip students should complete the Summer Semester with courses in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity in Business and Business Strategy. Finally students are required to complete 2-8 months internship in Business Development & Sales Forecasting, Corporate Finance and Financial Analysis, Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability, Information Technology Management, Market Research and Competitive Intelligence, Marketing and Brand Management or Project Management & Analysis.
