IIBA Chapter


Welcome to the UK Chapter of the International Institute of Business Analysis

IIBA is a non-profit professional association focused on the development and professional recognition of the Business Analyst. It is run by a team of volunteers who work as practising Business Analysts as their main occupation, whilst supporting IIBA in their spare time. 
IIBA is a community-based professional association run by BAs for BAs.
We have active branches in the South West, London, Midlands, North West & East and Scotland.
