Attendees receive guidance on how to verbally demonstrate the knowledge, abilities, and qualities required of a business analyst.

Attendees will receive guidance on how best to demonstrate competency in the application of their knowledge, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills in a BCS interview-based examination.

The BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis provides a professional qualification for business analysts. It is intended to provide assurance that an individual will be able to work successfully in the role of a business analyst.

The BCS examination allows candidates to demonstrate that they have the capabilities, knowledge, and skills to be an effective business analyst. Holders of the qualification will have had to demonstrate competency and knowledge up to level 5 in Bloom’s taxonomy. The qualification is intended to help you stand out from your peers by proving your dedication to your career and ongoing professional development.


The BCS require you to achieve four certificates before sitting the International Diploma exam. The certificates must include Business Analysis Practice, Requirements Engineering, 1 knowledge-based specialist subject, and 1 practitioner specialist subject. It is recommended that at least one of these certificates be achieved 12 months prior to the oral examination date. The BCS offers full flexibility in choosing the sequence with which you achieve these certificates. In general, Expleo Academy recommends that you attend the Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis after completion of the other three BCS certificates. We are happy to discuss your specific training needs to advise on your optimal learning pathway.
