On your way to an MBA, you need Milpark’s dynamic PGDip (Business Administration) for admission. The PGDip (Business Administration) equips you to excel in the marketplace by providing an immersive experience that will equip you with a variety of skills, such as critical and strategic thinking, problem-solving, responsible, and ethical leadership. Graduates will receive credits for four modules towards the Milpark MBA, which will enhance their career prospects and assist by reducing the time taken to complete the MBA.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration (PGDip (Business Administration)) provides the opportunity for prospective students with an undergraduate degree to gain general and advanced knowledge of business administration and management. Students without management experience can engage in a challenging curriculum covering finance, strategic management, design thinking for problem-solving, business research, business ethics and corporate governance, and social responsibility and environmental management.

An additional prospect, after completing the qualification, is to enrol for a Master of Business Administration (MBA) or a research Master’s degree to further career prospects in management and administration. Students who proceed and are admitted to Milpark’s Master of Business Administration degree will receive module exemptions from the Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration.

Having a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration will enable you to:

  • read and interpret introductory, functional and advanced literature in the field of management science.
  • communicate effectively, using graphical and language skills in the modes of oral and/or written presentation.
  • demonstrate understanding of the business world as a set of open systems, in which each element is embedded in an array of interrelated elements.
  • collect, organise, analyse, and critically evaluate relevant information to enhance management decision‐making.
  • undertake research projects.
  • identify and solve problems in the field of business management, using critical and creative thinking.
  • demonstrate an awareness of the economic, social and political factors which affect public managers and business people.
  • apply conceptual knowledge and practical skills in a specific work context, either working alone or in teams.
