The Future of Banking

The banking industry has been widely disrupted for many years, and this is expected to continue into the future. It is also responding increasingly to the need for greater ethical and sustainable products and services.

Milpark Education shapes professionals who are driven by values and are comfortable with major technological advancements. This means being open to more universal, but also non-traditional banking instruments. This, in turn, has precipitated a need to increase the focus on compliance and risk management capabilities, as well as ensuring that practitioners are equipped to combat the evolving challenges associated with fraud and financial crime.

In addition, graduates are expected to be ready for tomorrow in terms of general skills, such as creativity, analytical thinking, problem-solving and persuasion. Milpark is passionate about embedding these qualities into our programmes to ensure we produce work-ready graduates.
