Course Description

Business analysis is applied in a variety of situations and levels within an organization. In this course, students will explore five of the most common variants of business analysis: Agile Business Analysis, Information Technology analysis (IT), Business Architecture, Business Intelligence analysis (BI), and Business Process Management (BPM). This course will also introduce specialized techniques, methods, required competencies and the role of the business analyst in each of these focus areas.   Although each perspective has its own skill set, a broad knowledge of business analysis is essential when applied to each of these variants.
