Business Analyst Certifications

Overview: This document will share information about business analyst certifications.

Before we look into the Business analyst certifications, let’s understand business analyst roles. It can be broadly classified into two categories:

Functional Analyst – Focus on any specific technology or business domain

IT Business Analyst – Role that involves interaction between business and technology teams.

Some of the roles are:
