Programs and testing are based on the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK® Guide) – the global standard for the practice of business analysis.

An IIBA® competency-based certification tells employers you have the required skills, knowledge and experience in business analysis. Certification improves your marketability, your employability, and your earning potential.
