Project Highlight

Each year, ACESOL sponsors a MAP project in Chile. This past year, the project focused on implementing a PACE financing model for residential solar projects to increase adoption across the country and help Chile meet its carbon reduction goals.

Real-World Experience: Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP)

MAP is an opportunity to work full-time with your classmates to develop solutions to real business challenges for a sponsor company. These projects are offered at no additional tuition cost and designed to help you get outside of your comfort zone and develop project management and leadership skills.

MAP projects take place all over the world! In 2019, 67% of students worked on a MAP project located outside of their own country, with travel covered by sponsor companies.
