Successful business analysts are innovative problem-solvers and thinkers who have the ability to identify, understand and correctly respond to the challenges a business experiences. The Business and Systems Analysis short course will help you develop the analysis and design skills required by systems and business analysts. You will be equipped with a sound knowledge of the basic concepts of system development lifecycle methodologies, such as the V model and modelling techniques that are applied to structured analysis. Object-oriented analysis (UML modelling), such as data flow diagrams, use cases, entity relationship diagrams and class models are also applied. Theoretical concepts are supplemented by practical work in the form of case studies and assignments.
