The challenges of the post-modern business landscape require leaders/managers to have a multidisciplinary skill-set. The multifaceted nature of the MBA and its orientation towards integrating all parts of the whole is therefore the ideal incubator for post-modern leaders. A significant shift in the student’s orientation takes place during the arduous MBA journey – the student’s perspective of the world of work and business widens with the achievement of each milestone (module completion). Ultimately, the new paradigm is applied in a practical manner when the journey culminates in demonstrating the ability of independent research to address real-life problems or opportunities within the industry context the student comes from.

Milpark Business School’s MBA is based on the understanding that modern management requires practical implementation of skills learned.

Milpark creates an environment in which MBA students perform the skills they learn in an environment similar to the one in which they will perform in real life. They are immersed in the milieu; they practise the skill; and they receive constructive feedback from an expert.  

Our MBA discourages the separation of thinking (formulation) from acting (implementation), because the world does not stand still while the formulation process takes place. Our MBA education recognises the complexity of the environment, and learning takes place through a partly controlled, creative, conscious thought process. 

By creating a learning environment, Milpark facilitates conversational learning – acting and reflecting, feeling and thinking – and influences students to take charge of their own learning. 

Feedback from MBA alumni and industry (private and public) stakeholders is overwhelmingly positive in terms of the value the MBA programme has added to the individuals and the organisations they serve.
