Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and Business Administration Joint Major

Bachelor of Science

The Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and the Beedie School of Business co-operate to offer this bachelor of science (BSc) joint major program. This program offers in-depth combined training that is pertinent to development and administration in emergent biotechnology enterprises. Molecular biology and biochemistry form the scientific and technological underpinnings of today’s burgeoning biotechnology field while business teaches fundamentals of economics, management, marketing, investment and business law.

Admission Requirements

Students must meet the criteria specified by the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry (see MBB Admission Requirements found on this page https://www.sfu.ca/students/calendar/programs/molecular-biology-and-biochemistry/major/bachelor-of-science.html) and the Beedie School of Business (see Admission Requirements).

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS - BEEDIE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

Joint major applicants should apply to Beedie through the internal transfer process, which is outlined here, after completing 30 units, (including MATH 150/151/154, and the lower division requirements for the business portion of the joint major, except BUS 217W and BUS 254) and must either already be accepted to molecular biology and biochemistry portion of the joint major or be eligible for admission that term.

Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply. Unsuccessful applicants are permitted to appeal.

Application Deadlines

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

Program Requirements

Students complete a minimum of 120 units, as specified below.

Grade Requirements

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the Beedie School of Business requires a minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business grade point average for entry into all 300 and 400 division business 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, a student must have obtained a minimum grade of C- (C minus).

Lower Division Requirements

Lower Division Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Requirements

Students complete all of

BUS 360W - Business Communication (4)

Helps students develop professional writing- and speaking-based communication strategies they can confidently adapt to a wide range of business situations. The course aims to raise their communication performance to a professionally acceptable level, rather than to memorize or theorize about communication knowledge: this is a “learn-by-doing” course. Students will improve their ability to conceptualize, analyze/evaluate, synthesize, and apply information to guide their thinking and finished products across various business contexts. As teamwork is a fundamental skill valued by employers, students will participate in a major team project to learn about and apply best practices for collaboration with respect to professional business communication. The primary means of instruction and learning is guided practice in both writing and presenting in response to realistic business contexts. Instruction and assessment focus on both the process of creating professional, finished products, as well as the quality of those products. Prerequisite: This course is open to students admitted prior to Fall 2014 to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program and who have 45 units, OR to students admitted Fall 2014 - Summer 2017 to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program and who have 45 units and BUS 130 or (BUS 201 or BUS 202) or BUS 301, with a minimum grade of C-, OR to students admitted Fall 2017 – Summer 2022 to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program and who have 45 units and BUS 130 or (BUS 201 or BUS 202) or BUS 301, and BUS 217W, both with a minimum grade of C-, OR to students admitted Fall 2022 onwards to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program, and who have 45 units; BUS 217W and (BUS 201 or BUS 202), both with a minimum grade of C-; and Corequisite: BUS 300, OR to business administration joint major or joint honours students with BUS 217W with a minimum grade of C- and 45 units, OR to business and economics joint major students with ECON 220W with a minimum grade of C- and 45 units, OR to mechatronic systems engineering and business administration double degree students with 45 units, OR to management systems science or actuarial science majors with 45 units OR to data science major with BUS 217W with a minimum grade of C- and 45 units.
