BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis
formerly ISEB Diploma in Business Analysis

In recent years the role of a Business Analyst (BA) has developed into a specialist discipline with growing employment demand. BCS is an internationally recognised body for regulation in BA training and has awarded more than 27,000 BA certifications globally.

By completing a set combination of four BCS certifications, it is possible to achieve the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.

Offering a full set of practical BA skills that are easily applied in the workplace, the Diploma scheme is appropriate for both junior and established Business Analysts. The Diploma is designed for BA’s who want to gain qualifications, learn best practice and formalise the skills they have acquired in the workplace.

Candidates who have passed the four relevant BCS examinations (each a qualification in its own right) can secure their Diploma by passing a final oral examination.

Planit can provide Diploma candidates with an experienced mentor who tailors a learning plan to the specific needs of the individual student.

“The BCS Diploma is a great course for Business Analysts of all levels. I highly recommend it to both prospective and experienced BA’s who wish to study at their own pace.

Undertaking this course is the best thing I’ve done for advancing my career as a BA.

Despite being a BA for over 5 years, this course has helped to make me more structured, efficient and effective. The Diploma is very well structured and practical. I apply the learnings, tools and techniques from this course on a daily basis, and share these with my colleagues.

I can confidently state that being certified (along with work experience) enabled me to perform extremely well during my BA job interviews and helped me land a great job within weeks after the completion of the course.

Lastly, Planit is a great institution with which to pursue this course. My trainer, Mike Crawford, is a great mentor, guiding me throughout the Diploma. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and experienced, not to mention helpful, as he went out of his way to help me out in every possible way. The Planit team were friendly and supportive right from the beginning, particularly Stephanie who coordinated the course, handled my course enquiries and arranged my exams in conjunction with the British Computer Society.”
