Web Developer looking to move to BA.  

 Hey everyone, 

So, I'm currently studying information technlogy at Edinburgh Napier University and I've been accepted for a third year placement (12 months working), however its in a local uni's CM support team (so dealing with first/second line support along wtih online application testing). Now, I want to pursue a career as a BA as I enjoy a balance between IT & business, however being in web development for the past 3 years my answers are typically more technical for the moment as I am still learning the business skills needed hence why I was accepted for CMS support and not more of a project management type placement. Now, my hope is this placement will provide me with some much needed testing experience which could benefit me initially, but what other learning resources would you recommend so when I do graduate I have more of a balance between my business and IT skills? I'm considering either going for CBAP or IEB but they are rather expensive courses with each section costing nearly £1k..

Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
