Milpark Business School (Pty) Ltd was established in 1997 and was one of the first private providers of management higher education in South Africa. In 2007, Milpark registered as an independent Private Higher Education Institution (PHEI) with the Department of Higher Education and Training (registration number 2007/HE07/003).
Milpark is also provisionally registered with the DHET as a private FET college (registration number 2009/FE07/058) valid until 31 December 2015.
In 2008, Milpark integrated a broad range of financial planning, banking and insurance qualifications into its suite of programmes and became, as a result, a leading niche provider of educational programmes to a range of sectors, with a strong presence in the Financial Services sector.
Milpark Business School operates from three sites in South Africa: two teaching campuses in Claremont, Cape Town and Melville, Johannesburg, and a sales and support office in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Milpark Business School has three academic faculties, each focusing on the needs of education in their areas of specialisation. The faculties are:
The Faculty of Banking
The Faculty of Financial Planning and Insurance
The Faculty of Management and Leadership.
Each Faculty has its own Dean, who is well-versed in both the academic and industry requirements in the respective disciplines. In turn, the Deans are supported by academic heads and programme managers.
Milpark is proud of its students’ achievements in a wide variety of sectors, and believes these reflect positively on the status of the institution. The most recent PMR.africa national survey
on accredited business schools offering MBA/MBL degrees in South Africa rated Milpark the number one private provider of the MBA degree. Milpark was placed fifth in the overall rankings of all accredited business schools in South Africa in 2012, a fourth consecutive improvement in its ranking.
