KMI Media Group Announces Expanded Transition Focus and New Name for Military Advanced Education

ROCKVILLE, Md.--()--In the coming years, more than one million active duty servicemembers will transition out of the military into civilian careers. For the past decade, KMI Media Group’s Military Advanced Education (MAE) has been the leading journal of higher education for these non-traditional students, providing dedicated coverage of topics pertinent to their education needs.

“Obtaining a degree is just one part of the transition to civilian career success”

Now, MAE is making big changes during the magazine’s tenth anniversary of publication. In the June issue of MAE, the magazine introduces its new name and focus: Military Advanced Education & Transition. The issue features Transition Trends, a new recurring supplement within the journal, devoted entirely to a veteran or servicemember’s transitional needs.

“Obtaining a degree is just one part of the transition to civilian career success,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE editor. “The next step is actually landing the job. Transition Trends will have job fair information, resume assistance, interview coaching, and ways to identify military-supportive hirers.”

The June issue of MAE will include features on MBA degrees, in-depth coverage of the new Veterans Choice Act, and a cover interview with Eddy Mentzer, Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program manager with DoD. Transition Trends will include a feature on veteran entrepreneurs, a corporate profile of DynCorp International, and Making the Transition, a column featuring Student Veterans of America.

“Student Veterans of America is extremely grateful that Military Advanced Education & Transition magazine has made such a substantial commitment to covering the education piece of the transition from military to the civilian sector,” said D. Wayne Robinson, President and CEO of Student Veterans of America. “As we approach the 71st Anniversary of the original G.I. Bill in June, SVA is proud to partner with MAE by kicking off a monthly column within the magazine's new 'Transition Trends' section to provide articles focused on programs and resources intended to empower the next one million student veterans to fully participate in the new economy by pursuing the quality education and the rewarding careers that they deserve.”

Military Advanced Education & Transition will also feature information and guidance from some of the most influential sources for transition assistance, including Hiring Our Heroes and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University (IVMF).
