UMT Selected as A "Top School" in Military Advanced Education & Transition's 2017 Guide to Colleges & Universities

ARLINGTON, Virginia, December 8, 2016

' 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 2017 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 2017 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 tenth year of publishing the Guide, MAE&T was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutions were evaluated by their achievement in military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support services, on-campus support and online support services. In the December issue of MAE&T, the Guide to Colleges & Universities uses an easy-to-read graphic presentation in the form of bar charts, which will enable readers to compare and contrast schools to find the best match for their needs. 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.

"University of Management and Technology has been chosen as a TOP SCHOOL in the 2017 MAE&T Guide to Colleges & Universities research study. This is a wonderful honor, awarded to institutions with the very best practices in military- and veteran-supportive education." said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition's editor. "As the first publication to publish a list evaluating best practices in military education, MAE&T has been improving the process every year in order to provide our men and women in uniform information that will help them make the right choices about college. Thank you for helping us serve those who serve our country."
