Welcome Messages and Endorsements

welcomeGreetings and welcome to UMT-Connected.

I genuinely want to extend a warm welcome to all prospective and existing students who are interested in online education through UMT. We foster a friendly, supportive, and collaborative virtual environment, committed to providing an outstanding learning experience for all of our students. Rest assured, all of our online academic courses are considered equivalent to the on-campus courses and regular faculty members as well as approved part-time faculty members will teach them. Our programs, certificates, and courses are offered in a variety of delivery methods - on campus, hybrid, online, or at sites across the country and beyond.

Online education instantly leads to the following benefits, to mention but a few:  

  • Enriched & Inclusive Class Discussions
  • Enhanced Virtual Communications
  • Increased Knowledge Retention & Preservation
  • Uninterrupted access to courses from anywhere
  • Unparallelled opportunities for networking across campuses Vision over the next five years:

Vision over the next five years:

1. Change in Culture:

We recognize that online and technology-enhanced courses would require changing our existing frameworks for teaching and learning which requires a consistent effort on the part of the administration, faculty body as well as our students. In a partnership based model, we look forward to bringing about this change in a careful, systematic, responsible and comprehensive manner.

2. Enhancement of Infrastructure & Services:

UMT-Connected team in partnership with academic and non-academic support departments is working each day on projects to enhance existing infrastructure and services in order to achieve a 100% readiness level to support our digital initiative.

3. Course Development:

UMT-Connected team in partnership with academic and non-academic support departments is working each day on projects to enhance existing infrastructure and services to achieve a 100% readiness level to support our digital initiative.

4. Partnerships:

UMT-Connected strongly believes in building long-term partnerships with all the academic departments within the university and beyond and to collaborate with various publishers that provide digital material as well as to reach out to agencies providing corporate training products and solutions.

5. International Connections:

We aim to make connections with our alumni as well and collaborate with international universities so that that we can produce some creative content to teach online as well as on-campus.

6. Online Students:

In the future, we want to provide better integration of online students into student organizations, even helping them serve in leadership positions, to encourage connection to the school and their fellow on-campus students. We also hope to celebrate achievements, such as graduation, by creating more engaging events.

7. Quality & Accreditations:

UMT-Connected aims to ensure the delivery of high-quality courses, certificate and degree programs by meeting all necessary accreditation guidelines as well as quality standards at an International level.

Most importantly, the critical focus is to improve the students’ overall learning experience. This method will automatically lead to enhanced student engagement with each other, boost interaction with the faculty members and develop connections with the employers. As a result, students will be more prepared to enter the workforce, and our technologically-infused curriculum will enable them to do real work and gain positive experiences before and after graduation.

Once again, I congratulate you on your decision to pursue your education through UMT-Connected, and I wish you a successful and delighted experience with us.


Sincerely,
Mr. Rana Sahib
