Professional Qualification 

Hi all,

I've been asked to research professional qualifications for BA's. They have to be relevant to the UK (not US I'm afraid). I also have to consider cost as we're not in the best place at the moment. Also, there is a requirement that the qualification must continue to evolve and that re-assesment / new  modules are needed.

So far I've got:

  • ISEB
  • CBAP

Are there any others that are industry standard and recognised in the UK / world that you could recommend?

Re: Professional Qualification 

Hi Bernard,

For the most part, looks like you've found the main certifications for Business Analysts. 

The IIBA has recently announced the Certification of Competency in Business AnalysisTM (CCBATM).  It is geared towards practitioners with less industry experience.

A number of reputable training companies also offer certificates in Business Analysis such as: ESI International, IIL, B2T Training, Boston University, etc.

Business analysis is used to identify and articulate the need for change in how organizations work, and to facilitate that change. As business analysts, we identify and define the solutions that will maximize the value delivered by an organization to its stakeholders.
