Online Courses or Self Study 

I have got 5 years of experience in Call Center industry Indian . I have exposure to various domains like Banking, Computer Hardware Tech Support, Customer Service, Insurance and Sales. I have also been in roles like Quality Analyses & Process traning and Shift supervision.

I am currently working as a Senior Phone_banking officer with a leading US-base bank's BPO, India. I primarily deal with Off-shore & Premium Banking customers(United Kingdom & Jersey). This role has given me good exposure to banking processes and terminology.

I wish to pursue a career in business analysis. I have done my B.Sc Computer Science from University of Madras, India. I am currently doing my Master of Computer Application from Indira Gandhi Open Univesity through distance learning program. I am also good at Cobol & C programming, MS-Excel & VBA.

Could anyone pls advise of any online course for Business Analyst that can be done from India... ? If no online course available, I would like to take guidance to do a self-study...Pls help.

Re: Online Courses or Self Study 

Hi Rajiv,

There not that many companies offering on-line training for business analysts - yet. Here are some:

You might also want to check out Spectramind, a local training company in India which seems to offer a comprehensive training for Business Analysts lasting 2.5 months.  Since you are new to this field, I would definitely encourage you to take a classroom course. Once you have that under your belt, you can supplement you training with on-line and self-paced courses.

I would also recommend the following book: UML for the IT Business Analyst by Howard Podeswa

Best of luck!

Hi Rajiv,

One more thing... Villanova University offers a 3-course Master Certificate in Business Analysis which can all be competed on-line.  The first two courses are required:

And then you get to pick an elective course from their list.
