If the above description applies to you, you are a perfect fit for Milpark Education’s flagship qualification, the MBA!

Milpark Business School empowers future leaders to pursue ethical and sustainable business practices informed by the sustainable development goals (SDGs). This vision is built on “phronesis” (practical wisdom), emphasising not only the development of great business leaders but leadership for the #commongood. Ethical and sustainable business practices are therefore at the heart of our teaching and research philosophy and find expression in our AMBA-accredited multi-disciplinary MBA programme.

Milpark’s MBA curriculum consists of a purposefully selected blend of modules that ensure the development of managers who are skilled in the areas of social responsibility, the environment and corporate citizenship. At its core, the programme remains focused on the key management areas while paying sound attention to the critical skills that prepare our students to be ethical leaders for the common good in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The MBA is aimed at middle to senior managers in possession of a postgraduate degree or equivalent, desirous of acquiring advanced general strategic management skills and competencies.
