Executive MBA in Aboriginal Business and Leadership Information Session
Thu, 27 April 2017, 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM PDT
Indigenous worldviews have entered the classroom.
The SFU Executive MBA in Aboriginal Business and Leadership is the only accredited MBA program in North America with a focus on Indigenous business. Designed for mid-career Indigenous and non-Indigenous professionals, participants are proven leaders who share a concern for economic development, Nation building and self-determination. The program includes the core concepts and knowledge included in most MBA programs, but recognizes that traditional knowledge needs to play a significant role in decision-making for the well-being of Indigenous people and communities. Students can live anywhere and continue to work by attending intensive one or two week sessions in Vancouver over a period of two years.
