NCI Certificate in Business Analysis (QQI Level 8) Course

This course was jointly developed by the Business Analysts Association of Ireland and the National College of Ireland. The course is delivered by NCI, the QQI-accredited provider.

The role of the business analyst is to identify the core business objectives of an organisation and its constituent parts and to ensure that the processes, procedures, systems and structures that are in place are the most effective and efficient to enable it to achieve its core objectives.

This professional course offers academic accreditation for business analysts and for those who play a leading role in improving business performance, either in their own company, or in a consultancy role to others, through the use of proven business analysis techniques.

Who is the Business Course for?

This course is for business analysts and those who aspire to work in the role. It is ideal for those currently working as business analysts, internal and external consultants and advisors, managers, team leaders and members of improvement teams.

Entry Requirements

This course is open to those working as business analysts, trainee business analysts or individuals with relevant work experience. Applications will be assessed based on relevant experience by the Business Analysts Association of Ireland. Applicants from other areas will be expected to have a primary level 7 degree or proven work experience in the area. The college operates a Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPEL) scheme meaning applicants who do not meet the normal academic requirements may be considered based on relevant work and other experience. This may be assessed using a written application or interview.


The Certificate in Business Analysis is a Special Purpose Award (15 credits) awarded by QQI at level 8 on the National Framework of Qualifications. Students may transfer to other related level 8 programmes subject to normal entry requirements.
