Eloise Boye
Business Analyst Consultant

I was on the first accredited BA training cohort with the modules covered being business fundamentals, MS Excell, professional skills, project delivery and simulation. Working with the teams and going through project simulation and all stages of planning and execution over an accelerated timeline was a great experience. Having business stakeholders attend some of our presentations and give us real-world feedback was a great bonus.
