Are you interested in a career as a manager? Or are you simply wanting to enhance, develop or formalise your skills and knowledge with a qualification in management? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you should consider enrolling in Milpark’s Higher Certificate in Management (HCM).
The Higher Certificate in Management (HCM) is an entrylevel, post-school higher education qualification designed to equip the student with the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to function in junior management roles in diverse organisational contexts.
The HCM has a strong vocational orientation, which enables the candidates to appropriately select and apply sound theory towards solving practical problems that typically occur in the contemporary work environment. Beyond gaining knowledge and skills related to the discipline of management, students also develop generic competencies and values that make them better prepared to deal with fairly complex work and life situations.

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the management functions of planning, organising, leading and controlling.
2. Perform a basic analysis of the business environment.
3. Implement basic human resource best practices within a work environment.
4. Apply basic project management techniques in solving an organisational problem, thus contributing towards implementing the organisational strategy.
5. Integrate foundational knowledge from selected management disciplines in solving problems within familiar organisational contexts.
