Is this course right for me?

This course will help you explore the main themes of business analysis in a digital context. It will also introduce you to the role of digital business analyst and what it takes to work in digital transformation, so that you can assess if this is the right career move for you. In addition to the live online lectures, it’s expected that you will also put in two hours per week in self-study and an additional hour keeping a learner log.

How will this course help with my career?

This comprehensive course will equip you to transition from a traditional business analyst role into a digital one. This course would suit those currently working as business analysts, trainee business analysts, or individuals with relevant work experience who are looking to pursue a career in business analysis. In today’s tech economy, digital business analysis skills are in strong demand. This professional diploma will demonstrate to potential employers that you have the knowledge, skills, and qualities required for such a role.

What is the online learning experience like?

Our online experience is designed to be just as interactive, supportive, and inspiring as the UCD Professional Academy campus experience. 

Online courses can be accessed from any computer or laptop with an internet connection. 

Live lectures are delivered using Zoom. During these lectures, your teachers will use technology interactively to ensure an engaging learning experience. When appropriate, students will be encouraged to activate their microphones so that they can ask questions and communicate with other students.

What is the student experience like?

Student care is a high priority at UCD Professional Academy, which is why our Student Services team is on hand to support you throughout your time with us. They will respond to any queries you have, help you with any technical issues, and facilitate your learning experience at every point. All students are given access to our Student Portal, where you can see your timetable, access all your study materials, and manage your account.

How is this course assessed?

You will complete a learning log each week, plus submit a report-style assignment focusing on a digital business analysis framework, which will be used to assess your learning.

What are the benefits of a Professional Diploma?

A Professional Diploma is a relatively short, practical course that gives learners up-to-date skills in a professional area. They are suitable for learners wishing to advance their professional skills and career prospects rather than their academic credentials.

With their tight focus and duration, these diplomas are stand-alone qualifications and not referenced to NFQ levels or university degree/diploma courses. They are not generally accepted for transfer credit onto academic courses but are widely recognised and valued by employers.

How do I get my Diploma?

Your UCD Professional Academy Diploma will be issued electronically on a secure platform, with a link that you can share with employers and others wishing to verify your credentials. You can also add this qualification to your LinkedIn profile.

This Professional Diploma is not on the National Framework of Qualifications as a credit-bearing course. This is not unusual for professional courses of this nature, where the need is for fresh and actionable skills immediately applicable in the workplace.

What payment options are available?

A place on any of our programmes can be secured with a 10% deposit.

For full-time (bootcamp) programmes, the balance must be paid in full before course commencement.

For part-time programmes students will be required to pay 45% of the fees before the start of the course, with the remaining balance due within 30 days of the course commencing.
