Founded in 1999, MAPS College’s predecessor – the MAPS Institute – was a pioneering private educational institution in the Maldives. From relatively humble beginnings, the Institute grew in stature and popularity among the youth, particularly those aspiring to embark on a career in accounting, finance and management.
The flexibility of the courses on offer, coupled with the option to attain renowned overseas qualifications at affordable prices resulted in the steady increase in student enrolment. The partnerships with ABE and ACCA (in offering the popular CAT qualification courses) were also landmarks in the development of the Institution.
MAPS was awarded ‘college’ status in 2011 and subsequently moved to a new modern campus with enhanced facilities and services. It also introduced a new and exhaustive list of courses, ranging from Accounting, Business, Marketing, Finance, and Human Resource Management to Information and Hospitality and Tourism Management, which can be studied from Certificate to Master’s level.
Currently the leading private higher education provider in the Maldives, MAPS is the winner of the President’s National Award and the longest serving private higher education provider for ACCA, ABE, CTH and Edexcel in the Maldives.
MAPS College is focused on ensuring a wholesome student experience, including stronger intra-student cooperation, student-faculty collaboration, and close contact with the wider community. MAPS College strives to enhance students’ talent and ability, whether it be in the classroom, in the lab, on the playing field, or beyond, and ensures that students are free to be their most intelligent, creative, determined, and successful selves.
MAPS is located in the capital city of Maldives, Malé, within walking distance of key amenities.
The College operates in a brand new campus that includes 10 spacious air-conditioned lecture rooms and large seminar halls with state-of-the-art equipment.
Housing over 60 computers with full internet, networking, printing and other related facilities, the four computer labs offer students the opportunity to review Coursework and conduct additional research or complete their assignments. Students also benefit from high speed Wi-Fi available throughout the MAPS College’s premises.
MAPS College’s ultra-modern library is equipped with the latest technology such as touch-panel computer systems. The College’s cafeteria is a hub of student activity, where students can relax and socialise before, in between and after classes.
