Business Analysis Career Path

Business Analysis is one of the most sought-after and rapidly growing areas of expertise in business and government today. ALC offers a world-leading Business Analysis training program at Foundation, Practitioner and Diploma levels.

Additional information on each of the above mentioned courses as well as our full Business Analysis Training Portfolio is detailed below. 

International Diploma in Business Analysis

The BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis 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 – and to then sit an oral exam.  ALC offers the three Practitioner modules needed to satisfy the Diploma requirement. See details below and also please refer to the BCS web site.


IIBA vs BCS

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 (ECBA, 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.
