Careers in business analysis and project management


“If you want to make sure something doesn’t get done…make it a project.”

While that might make a good punchline, it certainly isn’t good for business.

Because of that, organizations in almost every field are looking for ways to better define the scope and mission of their projects and then use business analysis tools to measure the success of those projects.

So whether you are considering a career in project management or are ready for your next career opportunity, now is a good time to consider fine tuning your skills in business analysis.

To reveal how such integration aims to improve project success, UCTV's  Career Channel recently captured an informative and interactive presentation at UC San Diego Extension’s Career Development Week. Watch the segment here.

Frohnhoefer, MBA, PMP, CCP, managing director of PPC Group, and Greta Blash, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA, senior manager of Tribridge, discuss how project management and business analysis can better prepare professionals to both design and lead projects. In addition, they explore current issues surrounding each of the fields and how specialized development will help better prepare professionals to boost not only their careers but also their organization’s performance.
