Business Analysis Professional Citation

University of Alberta

University of Alberta

Business analysis is currently one of the most sought-after occupations in Canada. Recently ranked by human resources giant Randstad as the fifth most in-demand job in the country, business analysis also made the list of the “Top 10 Occupations with the Strongest Annual Average Employment Growth” projected until 2024 by the federal government’s Canadian Occupational Projection System.

Change has always been a constant—but never as fast as now. Technologies grow old at light speed, the advance of globalization erases traditional borders, and companies are faced with new challenges every day. Business analysts help organizations keep up with this quickly evolving environment by identifying what needs to change for a business to thrive.

Aimed at professionals in the areas of business and information technology, the Business Analysis Professional Citation will be of benefit to business managers, system administrators, system analysts, project managers, and professionals dealing with change management projects within their organizations. Learners in this career-enhancing program come from all sectors: government, industry, not-for-profit organizations, and small to large enterprise.

Covering the entire organization or focusing on specific projects and programs, the business analysis practitioner articulates problems and recommends solutions that are often technology-based but also involve changes in strategies, processes, and policies.

The Business Analysis Professional Citation from the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta provides students with a valuable set of knowledge and skills needed for this profession, covering topics such as enterprise analysis and architecture, interface and data design, solution verification and validation, requirements elicitation, and scope management.
