MAPS College is an establishment of MAPS Maldives Private Limited, which is owned by FALIM Group Private Limited.

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 enrollment. New courses in various fields of study such as travel, tourism and hospitality, public relations, and information technology accelerated the drive towards collegiate application. The partnerships with ABE and ACCA (in offering the popular CAT qualification courses) were also landmarks in the development of the Institution.
