Milpark Education / MBA


I am considering doing the MBA from Milpark Education and I was hoping to get some feed back from the group here.

I am looking for something South Africa based because that's where I'm currently located but I was also looking for some flexibility (because due to work I will be abroad for 3-4 months at a time over the next few years and I don't want to interrupt my studies.)

I know it's not one of the 'best' MBAs in South Africa but I'm just looking for something to skill up with, work up in my organization and all that. Would this be good for my purposes?

I suggest people reply to you at https://find-mba.com/board/distance-learning/south-africa-online-mba-56908

Is there a specific reason why you are focussed on South African schools? I appreciate you are there, but there are international providers that also serve South African students

You don't think that a local provider would be better, at least for the connections with the business community? That's mainly why I was interested in something from a South African school, to grow my network here. I'm from abroad and need all the networking help I can get.

For example, I just used LinkedIn to compare Henley MBA people in South Africa with Milpark MBAs. Henley has many more people and they seem more senior.

It looks like Milpark's alumni association is open to people who have taken any course there. So, you could take a short course and then take elsewhere an MBA with international accreditation.

You will be better off trying a school that has (at least) one of the three international accreditations: AMBA, EQUIS, or AACSB.

The program does have AMBA accreditation, that's one of the reasons why it's on my shortlist.
