BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis
The Business Systems Development (BSD) qualification scheme provides a range of qualifications in three subject areas: Business Analysis, Systems Development and Data Management.
Each subject area contains certificate level qualifications that may be combined into a Diploma. Candidates will be awarded a Certificate for each and every module that they pass. Each Diploma has a unique structure.
Candidates will be awarded the relevant Diploma once they have passed written examinations in the compulsory and specialist modules, and have passed an oral examination specialising in the particular Diploma subject area.
