I am currently in SFU business but thats mainly b/c of the schools close proximaty to my house. Overall I´d say UBC business is substantially better than SFU.

Actually SFU has a business school.
Having said that, UBC still has the edge overall.

curriculum:
both public, technically they are the same

Expense:
SFU (cheaper)

Faculty:
UBC (more internationally renowned)

Students:
UBC (in admission not only the cut off is 90%, but you also need to show leadership skills)

Campus:
Draw (personal preference)

Atmosphere:
SFU (Sauder students can be very competitive)

Job Replacement:
Draw (in BC)

Girls:
UBC

no SFU does not have a business school.

Mcgill does not have a business school. Is there a simon fraser business school? no. There is a Sauder business school, a schulich business school, a John Molson Business school, an asper business school, a rotman business school, an ivey business school.

Business schools: UBC vs. SFU (in reply to: Business school: UBC vs. SFU)
The gpa cutoff for high school students wishing to enter the business program at either UBC or SFU is actually around 86%. Futhermore, for college transfer students the gpa cutoff at UBC is 2.6 whereas SFU requires transfer students to have a gpa of 3.2 or higher (which is actually 3.5 in college on a 4.3 pt scale but since SFU uses a 4.0 pt scale they deduct 0.3 from the gpas of college students when calculating their admissions gpas). I have friends at both SFU and UBC, and from what I´ve heard SFU has a stronger Business program. If you decide to stay in Canada and start a career, it should really make much of a difference in terms of employability. As far as international recognition is concerned UBC may be slightly better known than SFU but the fact of the matter is neither school will ever be as widely accepted or have the same clout as top US universities like Harvard, Yale or Princeton.

Segal is open (in reply to: Business school: UBC vs. SFU)
SFU HAS a business school. Classes have already begun at the Segal School of Business. It is an incredible state of the art building that puts Sauder School of Business to Shame.

But realisticly, for employment in BC, going to either SFU or UBC is not going to make a difference. Internationally however, UBC probably has the slight edge.

who cares, just as long as you have a good work experience built up over the years, and shown that you volunteered, employers will hire you.

It´s not going to matter if a guy at UBC Comm has a 4.0 and can´t speak but the guy at SFU Business has 3.5 and can communicate well.

Who are they going to chose? the guy (or girl) that graduated from SFU..

this isn´t a debate between like SFU and U of T or something. It´s UBC and SFU. It´s both public, therefore the courses should be fairly regulated and thus they are the same.
