UC Berkeley Extension is proud to announce its new status as an International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) Endorsed Education Provider. An association for business analysis professionals, IIBA® is the recognized leader in codifying the discipline of business analysis through its Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®) and professional certifications.
As an Endorsed Education Provider, UC Berkeley Extension now offers IIBA professional development (PD) hours and continuing development units (CDUs) through courses in its Certificate Program in Business Analysis. PD hours and CDUs are applicable to certification and recertification, respectively, for IIBA’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP™) and Certification of Competency in Business Analysis™ (CCBA™) designations. All Extension business analysis courses are available online and accessible to students anywhere in the world.
“Business analysis professionals develop business solutions that often result in process improvements, organizational changes, or strategy shifts,” says James Connor, UC Berkeley Extension director of Engineering and Technology. “Business analysis speaks to the needs of companies to improve efficiency and reduce costs in today’s complex business environment. Extension provides the knowledge and skills to meet these needs, and our status as an Endorsed Education Provider is a testament to the quality we offer.”
