Information Analyst Program

Why the certification is relevant

The complexity and volumes of information about customers, suppliers, and operations is growing exponentially. Independent of the organisation’s size, the need for information modelling has become one of the most vital things in business and IT development on today’s global markets.

The Information Analyst Program has been structured to build on the existing capabilities of the practitioner and to infuse a new way of thinking, working and modelling to practitioners. This is done through theory and practice classroom training including hands-on information modelling skills building. This embeds disciplines that relate to information system and data modelling techniques.

The Information Analyst Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5 days training program and is designed and certified by the Global University Alliance.

Focus of the Information Analyst

The Information Analyst Certification ensures that each student gets the required theory and practice around information system and data modelling techniques. This includes the following:

  • Information system modelling (application components, modules, features, functions, tasks, service, etc.)
  • Information data modelling (data components, objects, entities, tables, services, flows, rules, compliance, etc.)

The Information Analyst Program can be integrated into any relevant organisation. It does so by adding theory, practice and modelling capabilities to the practitioner’s skill set.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the participant’s existing knowledge that capabilities are gained and applied.

Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the Information Analyst education and training program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, approaches, and modelling principles are customized, adopted and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.

The participant will discover how to drive forth fundamental changes within their organization and to achieve the objectives set in both innovation and transformation projects.

Upon successful completion of this program, you will become a certified Information Analyst.

The individual registration fee of €9,800 Euro (excl. VAT) covers tuition, handouts, case materials and conference facilities. Travel and accommodations is not included.

Important to note is that the Information Analyst Program requires input from interested parties as the program is tailored to each individual, team or organization and is customized with planned dates and location.
