Introduction

The faculty offers honors, major and minor programs, in co-operation with the Faculties of Applied Sciences and Arts. The faculty also offers joint programs. For a complete list, please see Programs Offered above.

The value of a broadly based education is emphasized. Because of this objective, students will take mainly non-business courses during the first 60 hours, completing three categories of courses. The first category consists of lower division requirements. These are mainly tool courses to prepare for more advanced upper division business courses. The second category consists of group requirements which roughly correspond to humanities, social sciences and sciences. In the third category, students choose courses based on intellectual interest or usefulness in achieving academic goals. The first two categories should be completed during the first 60 hours of the degree program.

The University Calendar in effect at the time the student's honors or major is approved establishes the degree requirements for the graduation of that student. All students should confirm with the undergraduate program coordinator the details of the requirements.

Admission Information

Criteria

Students will be selected competitively from one of four streams.

Category 1 - direct from secondary school

A portion of the annual admission will be selected from secondary school graduates based on the general Simon Fraser University admission requirements plus mathematics 12.*

Category 2 - direct from college

A portion of the annual admission will be selected from students transferring from community colleges or technical institutes. These students must have completed all of the required lower division courses (except BUS 207 and 254 which may be completed after faculty admission**). Students will be selected competitively based on the Simon Fraser University admission grade point average.

Category 3 - all courses at Simon Fraser University

A portion of the annual admission will be selected from students who have completed all of their courses at Simon Fraser University including the lower division requirement courses (except BUS 207 and 254 which may be completed after faculty admission**). Students will be selected competitively based on the cumulative grade point average.

Category 4 - some SFU and other post-secondary courses

A portion of the annual admission will be selected from students who have completed some courses at Simon Fraser University and some at other post-secondary institutions including the lower division requirement courses (except BUS 207 and 254 which may be completed after faculty admission**). Students will be selected competitively based on a grade point average which will be a combination of grades earned at SFU and other institutions.

To be considered for admission to the faculty, students in categories 2, 3 and 4 must have completed each lower division requirement course with a minimum C- grade. The number of undergraduate students granted entry to the faculty is limited to 400 to 600 new students per academic year.

*or equivalent advanced placement or international baccalaureate courses as listed under General Admission Requirements for British Columbia Secondary Schools.

**if BUS 207 and/or 254 have been taken, they will be calculated into the GPA used for admission to the faculty.

Application Procedures

Students applying under category 1 or 2 should apply to the faculty at the same time that they apply for admission to the University.

Students applying under category 3 or 4 should apply to the faculty after completing their 30th credit hour and before completing the 60th credit hour. Students should apply during the semester in which the lower division requirements, as listed below (except BUS 207 and 254) are completed. Students not accepted upon initial application may reapply. Unsuccessful applicants may appeal through the faculty appeals committee.

Application Deadlines

April 1* for summer semester

August 1* for fall semester

December 1* for spring semester

*application earlier in the semester is recommended

Application forms are available in the undergraduate program offices in the second month of each semester.

Non-Majors Access to Business Courses

Priority in upper division business courses is given to those students who are approved in a business program. (A business program is defined as major, minor, honors and joint programs.) Students are permitted to undertake the lower division business courses without formal faculty admission.

Students other than those accepted into a program in business administration may take upper division business administration courses contingent upon

First bachelor's degree candidates in other Simon Fraser University faculties may have specific course requirements modified by the faculty, upon request.

General Requirements

In addition to the specific requirements for major, minor, honors and joint programs, all students should note the following.

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the faculty requires for continuance in all programs a minimum CGPA of 2.25 and a minimum CGPA of 2.00 in all business administration 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 administration, a student must have obtained a minimum grade of C- (C minus).

Students with fewer than 60 credit hours may enrol in a maximum of 16 credit hours per semester. Those with 60 credit hours or more may enrol in a maximum of 18 credit hours.

Major Program

Students must complete at least 120 credit hours which must include a minimum of 50 credit hours outside the Faculty of Business Administration. Courses taken as part of group requirements (see "Group Requirements" below) or non BUS or non BUEC courses taken as part of the lower division requirements may count toward the 50 credit hours outside business administration.

Cooperative Education Program

2310 Lohn Building, 778.782 3619 Tel, 778.782 5922 Fax, www.sfu.ca/coop

The Faculty of Business Administration offers cooperative education to qualified students. Cooperative education formally integrates a student's academic studies on campus with relevant work experience. Employers from business, industry and government support and participate in the program. This `hands-on' approach to education extends the learning process beyond the limits of the classroom and into the working world by alternating full time study semesters with full time paid work semesters of career-related practical experience.

For those seeking a professional accounting designation (CA, CGA, CMA) arrangements have been made with respective accounting organizations so that work experience obtained during the program may be recognized toward the required practical experience.

Admission

Admission to the Faculty of Business Administration is generally required before application to the cooperative education program is considered.

A student must remain in good academic standing in the Faculty of Business Administration to continue in the program.

Admission to the program will normally be based on a student's academic record and a personal interview with one of the business coop program's coordinators.

Withdrawal

Admitted students who fail to secure a placement through job competition in two consecutive semesters may be required to withdraw from cooperative education. This withdrawal does not necessarily effect continuance in the Faculty of Business Administration. Normally, withdrawal from a work semester constitutes withdrawal from cooperative education.

Practicum Course Requirements

To qualify for the bachelor of business administration with a major in business administration and a cooperative education designation, students must meet University and Faculty of Business Administration graduation requirements.

In addition, students who choose the chartered accountancy option must complete five work semesters. A co-operation education designation requires four work semesters and a certificate requires three work semesters.

During study semesters a student must maintain full time status. A brochure which outlines program features is available from the business administration coop education program co-ordinators.
