Betsy Shackleford: Certified Business Analyst Professional!

Betsy Shackelford (R-WIT) recently passed the CBAP (certified business analyst professional) exam. A member of the Business Analyst Team (BAT), her team works with end users who want to build (or enhance) a new software system. The BAs determine software requirements, and use specialized practices to translate those requirements for the developers who build the software. Betsy has been working most recently with software applications for the Office of Research Administration, ACTSI, and also with the University Library IT team.

The exam is quite arduous, requiring the memorization of a huge amount of material, much of which is theoretical. “It’s like a CPA exam, only for BAs,” said Betsy, who studied for 6 months. The exam took her two and a half hours and was administered by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA). Her teammates presented her with a crown to celebrate the achievement!
