Students will learn to document 100% of the most critical fields of a Business Requirements Document.
Students will be able to determine the 6 key areas of any project, including a project in Information Technology.


  • A familiarity with basic Information Technology concepts/terminology is required for the course.
  • Very basic English language reading and comprehension skills are also required for the course.


This is a concise course that simplifies the creation of a Business Requirements

Document (BRD) for a project in Information Technology. BRD requirements are

sketched and defined in 2 steps: 1) the first step - Part One - identifies the 6 key project

areas for a project that is not IT-related; and 2) the second step - Part Two - describes the

6 key project areas for an IT project.  

Colorful graphics animate the text, and quizzes based on real-life scenarios engage

the student in the processes of Business Analysis. A final exercise guides the student

in selecting requirements for his/her first BRD.

The course includes a glossary of IT-related terms.  

Who this course is for:

  • Target students include the beginner Business Analyst (BA) and the professional transitioning into the role of BA.
  • The course may be especially useful for the student for whom English is a relatively new second language.
