On a limited, selective basis, individuals with strong undergraduate academic performance and a minimum of one year of full-time work experience have the opportunity of enrolling in a maximum of six credits of MBA core courses, MSF prerequisite courses, or MSA management preparation courses or select Business Analytics courses while preparing for their GMAT or GRE. If a participant subsequently is admitted to and meets all formal admission requirements for the Suffolk MBA, MSBA, MSF, MSFSB, or MSA, the six credits taken in MAPS will be credited toward their degree.

Completed applications MUST be received a minimum of three weeks prior to the first day of class in any given semester or summer term.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Immigration and Naturalization Service regulations, this option is only available to US citizens and permanent residents. Financial aid is not available for MAPS students because it is not a degree program.
