Management Achievement Program

Welcome to the Management Achievement Program. MAP is an engaging and comprehensive program designed to develop and enhance each student’s professional demeanor, build competencies for academic success, increase involvement in the college and local business communities, and allow students to combine their academic and professional goals and experiences.

MAP consists of unique opportunities such as workshops, speaker series, on-site visits to companies, and networking events designed to expose students to a rich set of educational experiences that will better prepare them for a successful transition to a career in management. This program helps students plan their route to a successful future. The more progress you make through MAP, the more miles students earn toward their destination: professional excellence and a successful career.

Students who started with the College of Management during the summer of 2018 or after are required to complete MAP miles in specific areas. These requirements are based on standards of career readiness defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. For details about these requirements, log in to UMBInvolved, scroll down, and click on your path on the right side of the screen.

Students who are not able to attend scheduled events due to work schedule, please refer to MAP Ongoing Opportunities.

All MAP students should review MAP Event Etiquette and Expectations.


The more students put into MAP, the more they will take away from it. Some of the benefits include:

  • networking with faculty, professionals, and successful alumni in your desired field
  • an opportunity to acquire a strong business presence (professional etiquette, speaking, and interpersonal communication skills)
  • the ability to create a résumé that will stand out with prospective employers


“I work/my schedule does not allow me to participate in regularly scheduled events; what do I do?”
We understand that not everyone has the ability to participate in events, which is why we have designed a series of Ongoing Opportunities. These opportunities will allow you to complete some of your MAP miles on a more flexible schedule. Visit to learn more.

Where do I go after I log in to UMBInvolved?
Scroll down on the page, click on "your path" on the right side of the screen. Through "your path" you can search for ways to complete each category.

Why haven't my miles shown up  yet?
A majority of the time, miles will appear on your account within 1-2 business days of the event. Occasionally, this may take longer due to the volume of events occurring at one time.

Do I REALLY need 80% of my MAP miles requirement met before I register for MGT 490?
Yes. There are no exceptions. Please work ahead on the miles requirement. The more you delay earning your miles, the longer it will take to graduate.

What if I didn’t RSVP for an event, or can’t log in yet, can I still participate in events?
Yes. We have a sign in pad at every event, so you will still earn your miles, however we ask that you RSVP for events to help us ensure the correct space to accommodate all participants.

Who do I contact about MAP?
If you have questions or concerns, call 617.287.7760 or email  When you contact the program, please make sure you include your UMass ID number, contact info, and your name as it is listed with the university.
