Milpark takes alumni network to a new level
The Milpark Business School MBA Alumni network has added an extra dimension to its valuable offering at the respected business institution. Long recognised as a leading provider of higher education and further education and training qualifications, Milpark recently expanded its alumni platform with the launch of MBSAlum, the Milpark online MBA alumni platform.
The website provides a virtual home for Milpark MBA Alumni, ensuring the institution and its graduates remain in contact and are better equipped to support the reciprocal relationship between school and alumni.
“The alumni platform is a way for Milpark and our graduates to stay close and to support each other,” said Milpark dean Dr Cobus Oosthuizen. “Our graduates go out into the business environment around the world, where they become leaders and agents of change. A strong alumni network allows the school to benefit from their contemporary experience, and permits the constant sharing of knowledge between students and alumni.”
On a social level, a strong alumni platform allows Milpark graduates to reconnect with old classmates, bringing the Milpark family closer together. The platform also allows students and graduates alike to share career advice and job prospects, and to constantly expand business knowledge through the posting of articles and invitations to speaking events.
A healthy alumni network nurtures the reciprocal relationship between institution and graduates, while ensuring the school remains relevant. It is also a crucial tool for Milpark to leverage the power of the extensive graduate pool it has produced in its 23 years of existence.
The Milpark MBA Alumni network, now supported by the online platform, will also provide graduates with a way to give back to their alma mater. Alumni can volunteer to mentor current students and inspire the next generation of business professionals.
“We are really excited about the enhanced alumni platform,” said Oosthuizen. “We see it as a game-changer for our vibrant, active and dynamic community and a great way to support the Milpark mission of developing ethical business leaders to serve society.”
