It’s delivered 100% online and on a part-time basis, which means it’s valuable now: you can pursue it while you work and immediately apply your heightened business acumen. And, it’s valuable later: you can put your GDBA toward a future MBA at SFU Beedie. Tuition for the GDBA program is 100% waived for continuing APSA employees (spouses & dependents under 25 are eligible for this benefit). Many GDBA students use the program to start their SFU Beedie Full-Time MBAPart-Time MBA or MOT MBA.
