Business analysis course FAQs
When you study online through Open Universities Australia, you can choose to enrol in a standalone subject or apply for a full degree.
In a standalone subject, you’ll spend up to 14 weeks learning about a specific topic, like business information systems analysis or data analysis for business. This is a good option if you already work in an industry role and you’d like to upskill in one area only, or if you’d like to give online study a test run. If you do decide to study a degree later on, you may be able to apply for credit for the single subjects that you complete.
To get qualified in business analysis, you should enrol in a full certificate or degree. You can become a business analyst with a qualification in IT, business management or data analytics.
