UMT Graduates, Families and Friends at 2017 UMT Commencement
2018 Top Colleges & Universities
ARLINGTON, VA, USA, January 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For 8 consecutive years, the University of Management and Technology (UMT) has been selected as one of the top schools for servicemembers and veterans in the Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T)'s Guide to Colleges & Universities. It has just been included in the 2018 Guide.
MAE&T, a higher education journal for veterans and military personnel, was the first journal to publish this reference tool back in 2007. The Guide is used to provide a way to measure the best practices in military and veteran education using a questionnaire of military-supportive policies enacted at over 600 institutions across the USA, including private, public, for-profit, non-profit, and two- to four-year colleges. Whether it is an online institution or brick-and-mortar university, MAE&T’s Guide provides the information servicemembers and veterans need to find the top institutions that will best accommodate them.
The Guide evaluates schools based 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 in an easy-to-recognize dashboard. This enables prospective students to quickly target schools that follow best practices in military education, and then to 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 & Universities provides the foundational information a prospective student would use in framing their educational needs.
"As the first publication to promote 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." said Kelly Fodel, Military Advanced Education & Transition's editor-in-chief.
