If you’re pursuing a graduate MPA or MHA degree, you may be eligible to enroll in up to two graduate courses before formally applying, as part of our CAPS program. Courses must be selected with the advisor's consent and will be offered on a space available basis.
If you only need 1 or 2 more courses to sit for the CPA exam in Massachusetts, you can apply for the Management Advancement Professional Studies (MAPS) CPA Educational Requirements option. You can take up to 2 classes of accounting, taxation, or business law courses at our Boston campus or online.
Eligible applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.0 and at least 1 year of work experience or a master's degree. You also need to undergo Pre-Evaluation Eligibility Determination notification from NASBA, outlining the classes you need to sit for the CPA exam.
Courses taken in the CPA MAPS program could subsequently apply toward the Suffolk MSA or MST degree if, after formal application, you meet standard admission criteria.
You may register as early as one month before classes begin, but students enrolled in degree programs are granted priority registration. Contact Caitlin DeStefano at firstname.lastname@example.org for advising.
If you have at least one year of full-time work experience and a 2.8 or higher GPA, you may be eligible to enroll in up to two MBA core courses, two MSF prerequisite courses, or 2 MSA management preparation courses before formally applying, as part of the MAPS program.
MAPS is available at our Boston campus. Some courses are also available at our North Campus location and online.
If you’re a graduate student in good academic standing at another AACSB-accredited institution, you can take a course at Sawyer Business School and transfer the credit to your university.
If the Suffolk course you select indicates a prerequisite, you must demonstrate via transcripts that you meet the prerequisite. You can take courses at our main campus in Boston, at our North Campus location, and online.
