Milpark Education comprises several schools, including the Business School. Each School will focus on the provision of expert education in their various academic areas.
Milpark's Business School will continue to offer its highly rated MBA while other schools will focus on their specialised range of offerings. The Schools of Commerce, Investment and Banking, and Financial Planning and Insurance will continue to deliver the niche qualifications for which they have become well-known. The newly established Milpark College and the School of Government and Public Management will offer further education and training (FET) programmes relevant to a number of areas of work,
"The different Milpark Education schools are streamlined to provide the best experience to our varied student body within each area of specialisation. Each school will be able to enhance and expand its academic offering as needed to ensure that all our learning programmes and qualifications remain academically current and relevant to their respective sectors," explains Esther Venter, Executive Dean at Milpark Education. "
"The newly established Milpark College caters for students who do not have access to higher education, or who do not have a National Senior Certificate. The Milpark College programmes are great for students who would prefer FET to HE studies, and who want or need a formal qualification to enhance their employment prospects," says Venter.
"Access to education remains a key imperative in South Africa and it is Milpark Education's goal to offer students a full spectrum of study options that are relevant to contemporary workplaces. In addition to a number of FET programmes, Milpark also offers a range of Higher Certificates, a BBA degree, a BCom degree with various specialisations, several Postgraduate Diplomas, and the MBA. Most importantly, Milpark understands the challenges facing students and offers flexible learning options to accommodate their varying needs."
The name change is a change in name only, and will not affect Milpark students directly, nor will the status of any qualifications change.
