Sustainable Business Joint Major

Bachelor of Business Administration or Bachelor of Environment

Students may opt for either a bachelor of environment degree from the Faculty of Environment, or a bachelor of business administration from the Beedie School of Business. The faculty from which the student chooses to complete a degree will govern faculty requirements.

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 Environment 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 http://beedie.sfu.ca/bba/apply for application deadlines.

Admission Requirements - Environment

Criteria

To be accepted into the joint major requires approval by the Faculty of Environment and admission to the Beedie School of Business. For further details, see above under Admission Requirements - Beedie School of Business.

For approval by the Faculty of Environment, students must complete at least 12 units from the list of courses required for the Environment portion of the joint major.

Limitations

Students may complete either the Certificate in Environmental and Social Sustainability or the Sustainable Business joint major program, but not both the certificate and the joint major program.

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 courses.

A minimum 2.30 overall 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).

Course Limit

For those pursuing the BBA credential, 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

The joint major is comprised of lower and upper division Business core requirements, lower and upper division Environment core requirements, cross-disciplinary focus courses, and a capstone course. Students will complete all upper and lower division requirements for both the Beedie School of Business and the Faculty of Environment*.

*Note: course overlap exists between the requirements for the Beedie and Environment portions of the joint major as, in many cases, students may choose either a Beedie or Environment course in order to satisfy a particular program requirement. Consequently, duplication of the list of the overlapping requirements exist under both areas.

Lower Division

Students complete all of

Business Lower Division Requirements

Students must complete all lower division required courses with a minimum C- grade.

Students must complete all of
