Introduction

The Company

Milpark and CA Connect have joined forces and are developing ground-breaking online solutions in SAICA-accredited accounting (CA) education.


Our online SAICA-accredited CTA and Bridging course combine the best aspects of supported and guided contact education, together with the flexibility and access of distance and online education.


Milpark Education is a tertiary institution unlike any other and is focused on new ways of teaching and learning. Our offerings range from undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications, to continuing education and corporate training. Our MBA programme has consistently ranked #1 Private MBA in South Africa. Our flexible learning platforms have provided students with an alternative to traditional universities by creating a quality education experience that is flexible but disciplined.


Department/ School


CA Connect has been involved in offering SAICA-accredited CTA programmes since 2010. In 2018, CA Connect merged with Milpark Education and now constitutes Milpark’s Department of Professional Accounting (details at http://OnlineCTA.Milpark.ac.za).


In 2019, we launched the first fully online SAICA-accredited CTA and Bridging programme in South Africa. Both programmes have been well received by the market and seen consistent growth in student number year on year.


We believe that the best way to achieve academic success is through teaching that is based on relationships of genuine care.


We aim to offer:

•An innovative modern learning environment

•Industry-leading teaching and learning design with appropriate academic guidance

and support.

•A focus on unique student learning needs; and

•Accessibility throughout South Africa.
