Will you participate in BA School Day? The BA School Day initiative asks practicing business analysts to visit a school of their choice and talk to students about a business analysis career. As many business analysts happen upon the career later in their professional career after having done something prior, and many colleges and universities still today do not offer a business analysis curriculum or degrees; this may be the only way that students can learn of business analysis as a career choice. Will you help?
As we noted earlier, Bluegrass IIBA Chapter is supporting the BA School Day initiative by asking practicing business analysis in our extended areas to participate in the initiative. We will help obtain permission from the school or school district for you to visit the school and talk to students. We have also created content to assist you in your presentation to the students, in addition to what the global initiative founders have created.
What we are asking you to do is to click the image below to review our BA School Day page. Review that material that is available to you. There are links to the global effort resources from our page. Once you have reviewed the material and decide you wish to participate click the "Get Involved' button to let us know you wish to participate and if you wish for Bluegrass IIBA Chapter to reach out to the school of your choice or if you have the relationship with the school to do that yourself. Once you submit your pledge to participate in this inspiring initiative, we will be in touch with you to coordinate your visit to the school. If you have any questions concerning your participation in this effort, please contact me (Stephanie Hawkins) at Community@bluegrass.iiba.org.
