Simon Fraser - Beedie Launches EMBA in Northwest British Columbia

Program to focus on area's key industries, including liquefied natural gas

Canada's Simon Fraser University Beedie School of Business has announced that it is launching an Executive MBA program in Prince Rupert, which is about 1,500 kilometers northwest of Vancouver.

The program will focus on some of northwest B.C.'s key industries, such as extractive resources, engineering, and liquefied natural gas.

"Prince Rupert’s economy is a key hub of global trade networks,” says Mark Selman, the program's director. “As the economy changes, opportunities – and the expectations of employees – both increase and become increasingly important. Beedie’s new Northwest MBA degree is more than ready to meet those market needs."

The EMBA will be three years long and allow participants to keep working during the program. Courses will usually be delivered over two, 3-day long sessions.

The curriculum will cover topics such as accounting for decision making, marketing, economics, leadership, finance, policy, governance, and strategy.

Beedie also offers two EMBA programs in Vancouver: a general EMBA program as well as one in Aboriginal Business & Leadership.

The school's new Northwest MBA is set to launch in September 2015. Prospective candidates should have an undergraduate degree in any discipline, with a minimum GPA of 3.0, but applications will be considered if they include some post-secondary education and very strong professional experience.
