Milpark Business School (Pty) Ltd was established in 1997 and was one of the first private providers of higher management education in South Africa. In 2007, Milpark registered as an independent Private Higher Education Institution (PHEI) with the Department of Higher Education and Training under the registration number 2007/HE07/003. Milpark is also accredited to offer a range of Further Education and Training (FET) qualifications by various SETAs.
In 2008, Milpark integrated a broad range of financial planning, banking and insurance qualifications into its suite of programmes and became, as a result, a leading niche provider of educational programmes to a range of sectors, with a strong presence in the Financial Services sector.
In November 2013, Milpark changed its name to Milpark Education (Pty) Ltd. The name change is a change in name only, and does not affect our students directly. All qualifications remain accredited and registered with the appropriate authorities and Milpark Education is still registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training under the same registration number.
The new Milpark Education comprises several schools, streamlined to provide the best experience to our varied student body within each school’s area of specialisation. The new school structure allows us to further enhance and expand our academic offering to ensure that our qualifications remain current and relevant to industry and students.
Milpark Education retains a national footprint in South Africa: we have two teaching campuses in Claremont, Cape Town and Melville, Johannesburg, and a sales and support office in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Milpark is proud of its students’ achievements in a wide variety of sectors, and believes these reflect positively on the status of the institution. The 2013 PMR.africa national survey on accredited business schools offering MBA/MBL degrees in South Africa rated Milpark the number one private provider of the MBA degree. Milpark was placed third in the overall rankings of all accredited business schools in South Africa in 2013, again showing continuous improvement in ranking.
