Business Analysis Simulation is a 2-day, workshop to complete the Advanced Certificate in Business Analysis Program. It is designed to offer a variety of hands on, practical and comprehensive opportunities to work in a project environment.

Participants will finish the workshop at a competent level knowing that they can apply their knowledge and be self-directed to perform the work necessary for project success.
