The goal of International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) is to advance the profession of business analysis worldwide. This includes the realm of academia where future business analysts will begin to develop their knowledge and skills. To achieve this objective, we have introduced several academic programs.
“IIBA student certification program for business analysis is very valuable as an employer of business analysts. Our company has always struggled with finding business analysts for summer internships, coops, and full-time hiring post graduation. This program will help companies like us find the talented people that we are looking for by providing us with students we know are knowledgeable in the industry standard for business analysis practices. Schools involved in this program will surely become a first stop in my campus recruiting campaigns
