The BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis
The Business Analysis Foundation course is also the starting point for anyone who wants to attain the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis. This is an internationally recognised qualification designed for business and IT professionals who are serious about business analysis and want to demonstrate they have a detailed understanding of business analysis best practice. To attain the Diploma, it is necessary to complete four modules – Foundation plus 3 Practitioner modules – and to then sit an oral exam. ALC offers the most requested Practitioner modules needed to satisfy the Diploma requirement.
Choosing the right course
There are two leading bodies in the world of business analysis – IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis) and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT. The two organisations collaborate for the furtherment of the business analysis profession. ALC offers the BCS curriculum on our public schedule and has the IIBA curriculum (CCBA, CBAP) available for in-house presentation. We recommend the BCS Business Analysis Foundation as the more robust starting point for any individual or organisation starting out on business analysis.
