The British Computer Society International Diploma in Business Analysis is an internationally-recognised qualification. The route to the Diploma is by examination - candidates are eligible to sit an oral Diploma exam once they have gained the required Certificates.
BCS has defined a set of topics, each with their own syllabus and examination. Successful candidates are awarded the Certificate for the topic.
The structure of the scheme is that candidates have to obtain two mandatory Certificates plus two from a set of optional modules, one each from what BCS calls practitioner and knowledge-based groups. There are four modules or topics available to candidates in each of these but Stehle Associates offers courses and examinations in just a few - those we believe best equip the Business Analysts of the future.
These are explained below:
|MANDATORY MODULES||KNOWLEDGE-BASED OPTIONS||PRACTITIONER OPTIONS|
|Business Analysis Practice||Commercial Awareness||Modelling Business Processes|
|Requirements Engineering||System Modelling Technique (exam only)|
The scheme is very flexible. Candidates can gain one or more Certificates in any sequence, and there is no obligation to continue to the Diploma.
Candidates need not attend training courses in order to sit the examinations. Experienced candidates can sit the examination alone and we provide monthly sessions for such direct-entry candidates - click here for details.
