The University of Management and Technology is pleased to announce that it has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM, and Military Spouse. UMT has won the "Military Friendly School" title six years consecutively. UMT will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools, special education issues of G .I. Jobs® and Military Spouse Magazine, and on militaryfriendly.com.

First published in 2009, Military Friendly® Schools is one of the most comprehensive, powerful resources for veterans today. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media's proprietary survey. More than 1,700 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,273 were awarded the designation. Rating methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Victory Media with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution's survey scores with the assessment of the institution's ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

According to Daniel Nichols, a Navy Reserve veteran and Chief Product Officer at Victory Media, "Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to the majority of colleges gives veterans a comprehensive view of which schools are striving to provide the best opportunities and conditions for our nation's student veterans. Military Friendly® helps military families make the best use of the Post-9/11 GI Bill and other federal benefits while allowing us to further our goal of assisting them in finding success in their chosen career fields."

The University of Management and Technology held its 2016 commencement ceremony and reception on June 18, at the Spectrum Theatre in Arlington, VA. UMT alumni who graduated in the past five years were invited. Close to 200 participants from the US and overseas attended. During the ceremony, graduate representatives, Mr. Thomas Hoyt III. and Dr. Hun-Hsien Su shared their personal stories. Dr. Yanping Chen, Dr. David Burke and Dr. J. Davidson Frame also delivered speech on behalf of the University and faculty.

Mr. Hoyt, who joined the military after graduating from high school, started pursuing higher education with UMT after retiring from the Air Force while still working as a full-time contractor. Now a holder of a Bachelor and a Master Degree in Information Technology, he used his story to encourage the fellow students and graduates: "Don't let life happen to you but instead make life happen for you!"

Dr. Su shared a story which involved in struggling through an unexpected flight delay, flat cellphone battery & heavy city traffic to get Dr. Frame to a keynote speech on time in Taipei. After conquering the initial panic emotionally, he was able to successfully complete the task. He concluded that, "When life gives us unexpected challenging projects, [...] we have to learn to manage ourselves before we can take on bigger projects to manage, so that we will not be thrown off-guard by unexpected challenges."

Dr. David Burke, who spoke on behalf of the UMT faculty, thanked the UMT learning community for giving him the opportunity to help the younger generation and in turn to learn from them while holding a successful Engineering Management career outside of UMT. He challenged the UMT graduates to help others after succeeding in their educational and career goals, because "[..] after you’ve reached these goals, you will feel another desire, a desire to give back, to help other people succeed."

Dr. Chen, UMT's founder and President, reviewed the university’s achievements over the past 18 years since it was founded in 1998. She also announced the UMT's intent of developing a strong UMT alumni community which will enable graduates to network professionally, socially and educationally.

Dr. J. Davidson Frame, UMT co-founder and Academic Dean, explained to the students that the graduation ceremony is called a commencement because having earned new degrees, students can commence moving on to the next stage of their careers. He also thanked all the family and friends who gave supports to the graduates to reach their educational goal.

At the conclusion of the ceremony and reception, the graduates gathered at the Iwo Jima Memorial for a group photograph.
