Introduction

The demand for Business Systems Analysts (BSA) in South Africa is higher than ever before.

But professionals with the right business systems skills are in short supply.

In today’s world, businesses that fail to adapt to their changing external and business environment ultimately fail in reaching their company goals and objectives. Business systems analysts identify the need for change in business systems, and facilitate that change through design and implementation of new or improved business systems and processes.

You can fill the BSA gap and land a business systems analyst job with a UCT online short course. Learn to balance user-friendly business systems that support strategic objectives, while meeting the end-user’s requirements and ensure you are recognised as a top business systems analyst.
