MCIT's BA (Business Analyst) curriculum focuses on teaching you all you need to know regardless of your educational background. We focus on both technological skillset acquisition of SQL, Agile Methodologies like SCRUM, and all relevant tools within the BA field and on the soft skills required to perform your job to completion. We offer an intensive focus on communication, analytical, problem-solving, and presentation skills and numerous others to be discovered throughout the course. 

Our program is geared to help business professionals, whether just entering the job market, or those looking for lateral shifts of employment to reach greater heights in this ever-expanding business subset. Our graduates learn how to communicate and interact with various representatives within a business to properly understand business processes and the required needs of the business. They learn to translate business needs from raw data into explicable and easily digestible requirements to communicate what the next steps the business should undergo to solve its needs. Working cross functionally, BAs bridge the gap between the technicians and the stakeholders to produce the desired outcome for business success.

I am an international student from Kuwait. I choose Montreal College over University education after careful evaluation. The fact that Montreal College offers hands-on and career oriented training specializing in Information technology impressed me the most. The other important factor that tilted my decision in favor of joining Montreal College is that the program is recognized the Ministry of Education, Canada. This means that the diploma offered by the college is recognized by employers across the Middle East. I am happy to share with you that I have found a high paying job and I am head back to Kuwait. For those of you interested in staying back in Canada, the program meets the immigration processing requirements as well. Above all, the college management is warm and welcoming and made me feel at home.
