BCI® - Business Case Professional Certification


The Business Case Professional Certification® is a professional certification designed for business case and/or business management practitioners who want to deepen their knowledge and proven competencies as well as to earn formal recognition for their expertise.

There are several ways to obtain training regarding this certification and to apply for the Certification Exam.


Step 1 | Eligibility

The first step is to verify if you are eligible for this certification.

As for academic training, it is necessary to have a university degree.

Professionaly, it is necessary to have a Management or Consulting background (ex. business analysis, project management, marketing, IT, management control, accountancy, etc - professional experience in business management or related areas to ensure that you have sufficient practice and are familiar with the most important concepts and the mechanics of producing business cases.)

Additionally one must prove to have at least 2 years work experience on a management field.


Step 2 | Buy BCBOK®

It is important to have access to BCBOK® prior to the certification so you can have enough time to study.

The information contained in the BCBOK® is extensive and requires careful reading for correct assimilation.

Later, when you schedule your certification exam, we will make a discount on the exam fee corresponding to the amount you paid for your BCBOK.



If you are aware of the certification program and have acquired the BCBOK, you can apply directly for the certification exam. However, we advise against this option. We advise you proceed to Step 3 or 4, accordingly to your training needs
