UMT Offers New-Wave Learning Opportunity

UMT aspires to instill up-to-date knowledge and skills on management and technology, enable students to learn how to learn, and establish global connections as a strong higher learning community.”

— J. Davidson Frame, Academic Dean

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, May 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Getting a degree from the University of Management and Technology, based in Arlington, Virginia, means something. Established in 1998, the university offers choice programs to working professionals. The university aspires to instill up-to-date knowledge and skills on management and technology, establish global connections, and enable students to learn how to learn.

It does this by effectively harnessing telecommunications and computer technologies, which make its programs accessible throughout the world , 24/7. It uses a proprietary online platform to provide affordable courses for working professionals and students from across the globe. By combining computing technology, a global-focused curriculum, and student-centric service, UMT has built a strong higher learning community. Geographical boundaries do not limit its reach. Its students reside in 50 states, the District of Columbia, 4 US territories and 78 countries. As of April 2017, UMT has provided various levels of education programs to 22,480 students. Of these, 11,510 have earned their degrees from UMT.

Online education programs offer students two major benefits: convenience and affordability. From the perspective of convenience, with online programs, students can access their education from anywhere: from the comfort of their homes, their offices, while on the road — anywhere with Internet access. At UMT, convenience is amplified because its programs are self-paced – students can work quickly or at a slower pace. It’s up to them. They can register for courses at any time – because of their proprietary advanced systems, they are not restricted by deadline dates characteristic of traditional semesters. During their studies, UMT’s state-of-the-art student portal system provides students with all the information they need to move through the program without hassles. Through the portal, they can register for courses, access course content, take exams, submit homework assignments, communicate with other students through forums, review their transcripts, and pay their bills.

From the perspective of affordability, UMT keeps tuition prices low. Over the past twenty years, UMT has never increased its tuition rates. A report by CollegeCalc (www.collegecalc.org) in 2017 shows that UMT’s tuition is 38% cheaper than the national average for private 4-year colleges and 49% cheaper than the average Virginia tuition for 4-year colleges. Without a large campus, substantial overhead, and expensive fees and housing, UMT keeps its base costs under control. By using technology effectively, UMT is able to operate hyper-efficiently, minimizing the expenses traditional universities face in maintaining large administrative bureaucracies.

The university offers twenty-five degrees including associates, bachelors, and masters degrees, as well as a doctorate in business administration. Variety of majors and concentrations are covered under those degree programs. It also offers certificate and executive certificate programs. A full description of UMT’s educational and training programs can be found at www.umtweb.edu.

Since UMT was founded in 1998, it has been guided by its slogan: “Committed to building futures.” Courses are updated continually. Faculty take great pleasure in creating a positive learning environment. Counselors are available to answer student queries. But a feature of the UMT program that distinguishes it from the pack is its evolving technology, designed to make the learning experience as pleasant as possible for the students who study in its programs remotely from around the world.
