What THIS PROGRAMME OFFERS
A job/money-back guarantee makes this Business Analyst Diploma Study & Placement Programme stand out.
You have access to the internationally and UK accredited BCS Business Analysis Diploma, support services and recruitment services to help you qualify and secure a role as a qualified business analyst.
You pay for your studies and invest in yourself and we work with you to place you in a professional BA role. Training and recruitment is what we excel at, we have been helping career seekers since 2009 secure careers and climb the career ladder.
Take your first step toward securing a rewarding career in business analysis by earning the International Diploma in Business Analysis which is accredited by BCS (the Chartered Institute of IT).
Because of the broad skill sets BA’s learn and due to organisations always needing to remain competitive and relevant in changing market conditions, the demand for business analysts has soared especially in the current pandemic.
A BUSINESS ANALYST IN A NUTSHELL
The main role of a BA is to investigate, analyse
and solve problems within the organisation and help the company’s leadership drive improvements using change programmes. BAs use a set of proven and accepted tools and techniques covered in the diploma programme.
Graduates from this programme are armed with the skills and qualifications to work in a variety of analyst roles like junior business analyst, business analyst, product manager, systems analyst, requirements engineer, enterprise analyst and business architect. BAs also work closely with Project Managers and Change Managers to drive business change and in smaller organisations BAs can take on some of their roles too.
On completing your diploma, you are supported by our recruitment team who work with you to secure a BA role. Qualified BAs are always in high demand and generally attract higher salaries. Many CTOs, CIOs, COOs and CEOs come from a BA background due to BAs having a very rounded understanding of the organisations they work in.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The natural personality of a BA likes asking questions to assess facts, thinks logically, enjoys analysing, problem solving and exploring solutions. No previous experience is necessary.
