Accredited business schools: how does Milpark rate? has completed its annual, national survey on Accredited Business Schools offering MBA/MBL degrees in South Africa. In this survey, the respondents (employers) rate MBA/MBL graduates and students in the workplace representing accredited Business Schools across 19 attributes/criteria, including: application of knowledge in the workplace; entrepreneurial skills/capacity/abilities; innovation and strategic management.

The ratings are based on the perceptions of the respondents. The research universe consisted of listed and large companies, national, provincial and local government departments and parastatals in South Africa that employ MBA/MBL graduates and students.
