In the complex future of the business world, qualified analysts will have even more significance than the present day. Already, there is a surging demand for business analysts with multiple areas of practice beyond there conventional role of building and managing IT systems. They are expected to translate business strategy in their work, experiment with tested metrics of business analytics, and identify processes that a business organisation needs to prevent – and successfully combat – external and internal challenges. This foundation course enables students to become effective assistants to a modern business organization’s business and IT executives. Students will be trained to inspect problems in a systemic process and to recognise – and recommend – appropriate solutions. With the qualification and training received in the course, graduates will be able to examine systemic problems in detail, develop effective strategies to address identified problems, and work closely with stakeholders to mitigate related risks. Once the course is completed, students will get the chance to practice on a live project.
