New developments and offerings in 2014
Our new name, Milpark Education (Pty) Ltd, has allowed us to structure Milpark Education into a number of schools, streamlined to provide the best education within each school’s area of specialisation. This is in line with best practice at other higher education institutions both locally and internationally and will allow us to further enhance and expand our academic offering to ensure that our qualifications remain current and relevant to industry.
Milpark College, our Further Education and Training (FET) faculty, will launch in 2014. Milpark College programmes are aimed at students who do not necessarily have Grade 12, but who want to achieve a formal national qualification or international certification. For your convenience, most Milpark College programmes are offered via contact learning in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, or via distance learning.

BCom offers tailored solutions for your career
The Bachelor of Commerce (BCom degree) provides a strong foundation in general business principles and the required accounting, marketing, economic and quantitative skills.
From 2014, Milpark will be offering BCom students additional majors in Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, Credit and Investment Management to complement the existing general BCom and financial planning and banking majors.
Preparing for a changing banking landscape
Milpark has revised its banking offerings to ensure that students acquire the skills to operate successfully in a fast-changing banking environment and a number of new offerings will be available from 2014.
The Higher Certificate in Banking Services (NQF level 5) aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to operate successfully in a specific junior/entry role in banking services. Admission onto the programme can be attained with a National Senior Certificate certified by Umalusi.
The Advanced Certificate in Banking Services (NQF level 6) will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to operate professionally in a more senior role in an organisation that promotes banking services. Admission can be attained with a Higher Certificate in Banking Services or an equivalent level 5 qualification.
Milpark’s Postgraduate Diploma in Banking (NQF level 8) will add value to the sector by recognising the broad range of expertise required to be successful in Banking with a non-banking related degree as a starting point. The minimum admission requirement is a relevant Bachelor of Commerce or equivalent degree, ideally with majors in Banking and/or Investment Management. Applicants with other degrees and work experience in the field are also invited to apply.
