Very systematic, dense and full of useful and practical information

Vira Gryaznova (Mobile software developer)

“At the first glance, the course did not look very extensive, but in reality, it is compact, dense and full of useful and very practical information. I like very much the second half of the course, where the career transition to BA is presented as an example of the business process and is described in a very systematic way. Thanks for the course!”

Interesting and thought provoking lessons to strengthen my business analysis skills

Weston Sobel (Business analyst)

I completed this course and found it extremely valuable. Yulia provided lots of interesting and thought provoking lessons and materials to strengthen my business analysis skills. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in getting started with business analysis, looking to change their career, or re-establish the fundamental pillars of business analysis. I found myself revisiting the course when I was enhancing my resume and on the job market and it really helped make the difference!
