BCS Certificate in Business Analysis Practice

Growing with Business Analysis

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

It was in the year 2004 (barely 13 years ago) that the International Institute of Business Analysis was founded. It is a concept much older than that. The BCS or the British Computer Society which is now responsible for awarding Business Analysis certification to the delegates was established around 60 years ago in 1957 AD. It was only in the last 10 years or so that developments took place in the field of Business Analysis at a very rapid pace. Business Analysis lays emphasis on refining the present business situations and recognizing business solutions for the problems faced by the businesses.
