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.

ABOUT Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is a town in Buckinghamshire, South East England, that lies equidistant from London, Birmingham, Oxford, Cambridge and Leicester.  Although the town was found as recent as January 1967 to provide for the more residential area, archaeologists have traced its existence back to the Bronze Age. When the town of Milton Keynes came into existence in 1967 it took under its umbrella the existing towns of Bletchley, Wolverton and Stony Stratford. The town got its name from the  Middle Age village of Milton Keynes which was mentioned as Middeltone in the 11th Century.

The town has a population of 250,00 as of now which is almost 5 times than it was when it came into existence in 1967.The design of this town was created by known urban planners and architects including Lord Norman Foster, Sir Richard MacCormac, Ralph Erskine, Henning Larsen, Martin Richardson and John Winter. The design the created was of a modernist type and used the grid square system.

The town is home to various parkland and lakes which are now known to characterize Milton Keynes now. Though one may find very tall buildings in Milton Keynes today, this was not so until 2004. Earlier, as a rule, no building could be taller than a tree.Milton Keynes is a combination of both the ancient and modern attracts visitors and new residents alike.
