Business analysts work as liaisons among stakeholders to elicit, analyze, communicate and validate requirements for changes to business processes, policies and information systems. They bridge the gap – translating between business needs and IT – and understand the organization, the users and IT. Business analysts must have a broad range of business, technical and interpersonal skills.
- Understanding and defining the organizational need
- Gathering the information needed to clearly define requirements
- Documenting requirements for use by all stakeholders
- Analyzing, verifying and validating requirements
- Creating a framework for successful requirements management and communication
Our certificate program was developed to align with the IIBA® (International Institute of Business Analysis) Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK™).
All course materials will be provided electronically. Registered students will receive access instructions in their enrollment reminder emails prior to class.
"The courses were very interactive, and we were constantly challenged to think, be creative, and come up with ways we can possibly foster change in our own work environments. I feel more prepared to sit for the professional exam when the time comes.”
