UC San Diego Extension remains committed to helping you achieve your goals. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned all of our courses to an online, hybrid or live-online format. Online classes (asynchronous) will have pre-recorded lectures each week and guided assignments from the instructor. Hybrid classes are fully online with live (synchronous) virtual class meetings each week using the Zoom conferencing system. The live-online sections have synchronous sessions via Zoom.

Professionals with skills in analyzing information and incorporating findings into strategic planning and decision making are highly demanded. The Specialized Certificate in Business Analysis Tools and Strategies will offer opportunities for students to develop the tools and strategies of business analysis. Students completing this certificate will obtain comprehensive training in the foundational skills needed to be effective when assigned projects associated with organizational change and acquire the background necessary to apply their expertise to solving real-world business problems.
