Information Systems in Business Administration and Computing Science Joint Major

Bachelor of Business Administration or Bachelor of Science

This program is offered co-operatively by the Beedie School of Business and the School of Computing Science. In general, students are expected to meet the requirements of both the department and the School with respect to admission, continuation and graduation requirements.

Students may opt for a bachelor of science from the Faculty of Applied Sciences, or a bachelor of business administration from the Beedie School of Business. Faculty requirements will be governed by the faculty from which the student chooses to complete a degree.

Admission Requirements

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS - BEEDIE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

Internal Transfer (Category 3 or 4) applicants should apply to Beedie by submitting a supplemental application form after completing 30 units (including lower division requirements, except BUS 217W and BUS 254), meeting a minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average, and must either already be accepted to the Computing Science portion of the Joint Major or be eligible for admission that term. The supplemental application can be found on Beedie's website. Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply. Unsuccessful applicants may appeal through the faculty admissions appeals committee.

Application Deadlines

Visit https://beedie.sfu.ca/programs/undergraduate/bba-major/how-to-apply for application deadlines.

Grade Requirements

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the Beedie School of Business requires a minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average for entry into all 300 and 400 division business administration courses.

A minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average is required for graduation from a Business major, joint major, or double degree program.

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 administration, 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

Lower Division Requirements

Students complete one of
