UMT Selected as A "Top School" in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2016 Guide to Colleges

ARLINGTON, Virginia, December 16, 2015

'The University of Management and Technology is pleased to announce that it has received the designation of a Top School in the Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T)'s 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities. The Guide, which measures best practices in military and veteran education, will be released in the December and is available online at www.mae-kmi.com.

The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE&T's 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Now in its ninth year of publishing the Guide, MAE&T was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services. Each school's performance rating by category is represented by an easy-to-recognize dashboard. This enables prospective students to quickly target schools that follow best practices in military education, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations. With input from an advisory board of educational and government experts, and criteria based on recommendations from the VA and military services, MAE&T's Guide to Colleges and Universities provides the foundational information a prospective student would use in framing his or her educational needs.

"Our goal is to be a dynamic resource for active servicemembers and those who have moved from the military to their civilian careers, helping them find the school that best fits their plans for the future," said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition's editor. "We think this year's Guide is our most comprehensive to date, thanks to our newly established advisory board. The board evaluated the drafts of the questionnaire, made pages of notes and suggestions and helped to redefine questions for clarity. We thank them for their thoughtful edits and additions to our process."
