Rapid technological advances have had a disruptive effect, forcing companies to seek new strategies. Business analysis courses can help them adapt to change. The primary role of a business analyst is to develop new and more effective solutions that will add value by streamlining a company’s operations, thus helping it achieve its goals and grow. Such individuals are rarely born, so most require specialised training to acquire the skills essential for effective business management.

There are two ways for a company to gain these skills. If management is prepared to wait for a new staff member to gain sufficient practical experience, it could appoint a newly qualified business graduate. On the other hand, if one would prefer not to meet the salary expectations of an MBA graduate, the more economical alternative might be to provide a promising existing staff member with the specialised analytical knowledge gained from an accredited business analysis course, like the 12-month option available through the Geeks4Learning training programme.

The course content aligns entirely with the latest industry standards and trends. Applicants must hold a matric certificate, can study online, and have access to the course material for 24 months, allowing them plenty of time to prepare for a Media, Information and Communications Technology (MICT) SETA-accredited qualification.

In addition, if a company should undertake to sponsor a member of a previously disadvantaged community to attend this course, it will qualify for a significant boost to its B-BBEE scoreboard, which could open the door to new business opportunities and accelerate its progress.
