Student Spotlight

Jose Manlapaz

McLean, VA

UMT's personalized approach and online support can help you achieve your educational goals on your own time.

Jose Manlapaz (BBA ’23) had always been interested in pursuing higher education, but with a busy work and life schedule, finding the time to attend traditional classes was a daunting task. That's when he stumbled upon the University of Management and Technology (UMT). "I was drawn to UMT's personalized approach," he explains. "The ability to have a personal point of contact for admissions and the ongoing support for study completion made me feel valued as a student."

The online nature of the programs also appealed to Jose. He appreciated the flexibility to complete his coursework on his own time while still receiving support from faculty and staff. "The continuing support from staff and faculty with personal phone calls and emails regarding progress was a huge help," he notes.

After completing his degree, Jose feels better equipped to implement changes using the latest available technology and resources. "The knowledge I gained at UMT will help me start and grow my business," he says. "It has widened my scope of possibilities."

Throughout his UMT experience, Jose found personal engagement and a supportive community to be invaluable. The ability to finish online was also particularly valuable to him. He highly recommends UMT to anyone seeking a personalized approach to higher education.

NOTE: Jose is a graduate representative at the University of Management and Technology’s 2023 Commencement Ceremony. His speech can be found here.
