About the course
Improve business performance, competitiveness and analytical scope and implement actionable changes in your organisation with the Certificate in Business Analysis.
The business analyst is a title we are seeing pop up more and more, and this QQI Level 8 certificate is designed to prepare you to pursue a career in this vital field.
As the name implies, a business analyst's primary role is an analytical one: breaking down the business, identifying requirements for ongoing projects, ensuring everything remains on schedule, etc. When people see "business analyst", however, they think only about charts and number crunching. What we focus on in this course, in addition to analytical techniques, is how to be an effective communicator.
