The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) is a non-profit professional association formed in October 2003 with the purpose of supporting and promoting the discipline of business analysis.[3]

IIBA helps business analysts develop their skills and further their careers by providing access to relevant content. It created A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK), a collection of knowledge within the BA profession, reflecting the current generally accepted practices. IIBA offers formal certification for business analysis professionals, including the Certification of Competency in Business Analysis (CCBA) and Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) designations.

IIBA has local chapters worldwide. It is a member organization of the Federation of Enterprise Architecture Professional Organizations (FEAPO).


The IIBA organization was founded in 2003, and the Body of Knowledge Committee was founded in 2004. In 2005, the BABOK Guide was released and the CBAP certification program was implemented. Membership grew to over 5,000 members by 2008, and 16,000 by 2011. Membership in 2014 is 27,000, and there are 109 chapters on 6 continents.[4]
