Business Analysis


Business Analysts are in high demand in many industries. This profession plays a critical role in assuring an organization's significant investments in technology deliver meaningful and lasting business results.

The job of a Business Analyst is not easy. As Michael Hugos wrote in Computerworld: "These are some of the hardest skills to master in the whole IT profession. And companies need good business analysts now more than ever if they are going to thrive in our fast-changing global economy."

To help you and your firm gain the benefits of business analysis, UWM offers a Business Analysis Certificate Program. Based on the IIBA's Business Analysis Body of Knowledge®, this series addresses the critical skills needed to succeed in the day-to-day roles of a business analyst.

You may take any module as an individual seminar or commit to the entire series. To earn the Business Analysis Certificate, a candidate must successfully complete seven courses with at least five from the Core course list.
