UMT Ranks #13 of the 30 Most Affordable Private Colleges in the U.S

ARLINGTON, Virginia, November 19, 2021

In its 2021 ranking, Newsweek ranked University of Management and Technology (UMT) #13 of "The 30 Most Affordable Private Colleges in the U.S."

In keeping with a long-standing goal to be affordable, the tuition rate for study at the UMT is the same today as when the university was established in 1998. This stands in marked contrast to the doubling and tripling of tuition rates at the majority of American universities and colleges over the past two decades.

After 23 years in operation and with more than 26,000 graduates spread globally, UMT continues to fulfill the promise it made since it was founded: to offer high-quality education programs that are affordable and convenient. UMT set out as an online university in January 1998, at that time, one of few institutions in the United States to deliver higher education degree programs using internet technology. Over the years, it has built a solid reputation in delivering an educated and job-ready workforce to society. As a result, various sources have rated UMT high in its quality and affordability in 2020. Included here are:

Rank #3 – Top 50 Online MBA Programs and #2 in Student Satisfaction

Rank #14 - Top 20 Nationally Accredited Online Colleges

Rank #18 - The Best Affordable Online MPA Degree Programs

Rank #2 - Cheapest Colleges in Virginia by In State Total Cost

Rank #6 - Cheapest Colleges in Virginia by Out of State Tuition

Rank #18 Cheapest Colleges in Virginia by In State Tuition
