Business Major

Bachelor of Business Administration

Students admitted to the Beedie School of Business for the Fall 2014 term onwards must complete the Business Foundation Program within their first term.

During the first 60 units of the program, students will complete mainly non-business courses, which fall under three categories of courses. The first category consists of lower division requirements that are mainly foundation courses, which prepare students for more advanced upper division business courses. The second category consists of courses completed to meet university requirements in writing, quantitative and breadth areas. These first two categories should be completed during the first 60 units.

In the third category, students choose courses that are based on intellectual interest or to achieve academic goals. The last 60 units of the degree program consist of the core upper division business courses, at least one area of concentration, and lower and upper division electives.

Students are also required to complete the Business Career Passport, which consists of six workshops that will prepare students to manage their career through their academic program and after graduation. The goal of the Business Career Passport is to help students make informed decisions about career paths, gain access to career opportunities and present themselves professionally to employers. Co-ordinated through the Career Management Centre (CMC) at the Beedie School of Business, students may begin this program at any time during their degree program. All workshops must be successfully completed prior to graduation.

Admission Requirements

Please refer to the admission requirements section link.

Grade Requirements

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the Beedie School of Business requires a minimum 2.40 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) for entry into all 300 and 400 division business courses.

For a course to be accepted as fulfilling a prerequisite, or for a lower division requirement, or for a core course to be accepted in a student’s program in business, a student must have obtained a minimum grade of C- (C minus).

Course Limit

Students with fewer than 60 units may enrol in a maximum of 16 units per term. Those with 60 or more may enrol in a maximum of 18 units.

Letters of Permission

The Beedie School of Business does not normally approve letters of permission for students already enrolled at Simon Fraser University.

Program Requirements

Students complete at least 120 units, within which:

  • Students must complete a minimum of either 15 courses (each worth three or more unit) or 45 units, outside the Beedie School of Business*. Within the 15 courses, or 45 units, students must also meet the University requirements for breadth — 6 units labeled as Breadth-Humanities, 6 units labeled as Breadth-Science, and 6 units labeled as Breadth-Social Science, and 6 units of additional breadth that may or may not be labeled.

*Courses not labeled as BUS or BUEC that are completed as part of the lower division requirements may be used toward the 15 courses or 45 units outside business.

  • Students admitted to the Beedie School of Business for the Fall 2014 term onwards must complete the Business Foundation Program in their first term. Students admitted through Category 1 must complete the Business Foundation Program – High School Stream.
