Business School

Milpark Business School delivers an education that empowers and equips current and future leaders to pursue ethical and sustainable business practices informed by the SDG's (Sustainable Development Goals), in an evolving local, Continental and global milieu. 

TOMORROW IS BEAUTIFUL…

The old truths suggest that to lead, leaders must have foresight, and they must lead by example; they must motivate and inspire on a moral basis, through aspiration as well as recognition and reward. It is precisely this calm, considered, and ethical leadership, required to lead and inspire large numbers of people that seems in short supply today…

As a business school, we, our students and alumni will endeavour to be generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable economy – for our country, our continent, and the world at large. Developing ethical leaders for the common good.

Frequently Asked Questions

Milpark’s flexible study options let you choose between contact or distance learning online  and all our qualifications are registered and accredited with the relevant authorities. 

milpark's flagship qualification, the MBA, received AMBA accreditation in 2018, and is the only AMBA accredited MBA in Africa for both contact and online distance learning. With this accreditation, Milpark’s MBA has joined the top 2% of global business schools in over 70 countries.

Our highly qualified academic staff have extensive industry experience, which ensures a learning environment that promotes growth-producing experiences for students. Our course content is relevant, contemporary and updated regularly. 

Milpark Business School also boasts excellent utilisation of technology, enabling easy online registration, administrative processes (results, documentation, etc.), academic support (including study plans, extra articles, exam guidelines and self-assessment questions) and tutor support. Our Student Support Centre provides excellent administrative support in our quest for delighting our students. 

We have two intakes per year, allowing students to start either at the beginning of the year or at mid-year. A more affordable offering means that students only pay for the modules they are enrolled for. 
We are a member of the South African Business Schools Association and the African Association of Business Schools, which ensures our alignment with both national and African business school fraternities. 

Finally, as a signatory to the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), Milpark Business School has declared its commitment to developing our students to become generators of sustainable value for business and society at large, and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy. We incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility of initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact. 

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.
