Time: 9:30am to 12:00pm
Location: Washington D.C., USA

The University of Management and Technology successfully held its 2018 Commencement on Saturday, June 30th at the AUSA Conference & Event Center in Arlington, VA. Over 250 graduates, family and friends attended the ceremony and the reception.

During the ceremony, graduate representative, Mrs. Bettye Lee Long-Walden, shared her personal story. Dr. Yanping Chen and Dr. J. Davidson Frame also delivered speeches on behalf of the University.

Mrs. Long-Walden, who started her Master of Science in Management degree after 20 years being out of the school and a working-mother, found flexible, on-line schedule allowing her to take classes from anywhere at any time. She thanked the UMT teachers who took the time to make her feel like part of the class with their feedback on her assignments and their kind words of encouragement. She encouraged everyone that “No matter how long it takes or how difficult the journey, always believe in yourself and have the courage to follow your dreams.”

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