OTHER MILPARK EDUCATION PROGRAMMES Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) The current drive to expand the South African economy as well as current global developments require the development of people with general business management skills who can be accommodated in any economic sector. The BCom degree with a general major provides a strong foundation in general business principles and the required accounting, marketing, economic and quantitative skills. As an alternative to a general commerce major, Milpark students can choose from six areas of specialisation, namely Financial Planning, Banking, Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, Investment Management and Credit.

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) The BBA is designed to offer a well-balanced exposure to the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to operate effectively in a general management environment or as a foundation for postgraduate studies in Business Administration or related areas. In order to set a broad foundation for a conceptual and functional understanding of management issues, this qualification adopts three majors, namely, Business Management, Marketing and Human Resources Management. These three areas are developed over the three levels (years) in a carefully integrated manner that reinforces lateral learning to achieve the set outcomes of the qualification. In addition to the major streams, students are exposed to subjects such as Risk Management, Project Management, Financial Management and Leadership Development, selected to align the qualification to the demands to the contemporary business organisation. The BBA is an NQF level 6 qualification. Click here for further information. Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration is designed to perform two functions: to cap a Bachelor degree with skills and knowledge required to operate at a more senior level in business, and to provide an academic bridge to further study at Master’s level. The curriculum and design of the programme ensure that this qualification equips present and future business leaders for successful careers in the South African economy. This is a (new) NQF level 8 qualification. Click here for further information. SHORT PROGRAMMES Milpark Education acknowledges the fact that business today is dynamic with its associated challenges.
