Each of the UMT's MPA, MSM and MSIT degrees is a thirty-three (33) credit-hour program and its MBA degree is a forty-five (45) credit-hour program. Students can apply for up to fifteen (15) credit-hours of previous graduate level work (including credit for courses taken at DAU) toward the MPA, MSM or MSIT and twenty-one (21) credit-hours toward the MBA. In determining the number of credit hours that can be transferred, UMT counselors will examine courses taken at DAU on a course by course basis. At a minimum, UMT will accept the American Council of Education (ACE) recommended credits for DAU courses. (See ACE’s The Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services.) In some cases, UMT will accept more, based on the number of contact hours of study that students experience.
UMT's Graduate Certificate is a twenty-one (21) credit-hour (semester-based) program. UMT will accept up to six (6) credit-hours of transfer credit towards the certificate.
UMT's Executive Certificate is a non-academic, non-credit program. Executive Certificates are awarded to students who complete one hundred fifty (150) Professional Development Units (PDUs) of executive development courses in the project management and acquisition management areas. UMT will accept up to forty-five (45) PDUs of credit toward the Executive Certificate.
UMT's BBA program is a one hundred twenty (120) credit-hour program (semester-based).
