As I've noted before on this forum, there are various methods to leverage oneself into a business intelligence career. (Read "Business intelligence certifications: Are they worth it?") However, as for education, if you are so inclined to read and do online education, SearchDataManagement.com is a good place to start. Listen to a podcast on business intelligence jobs and certification trends, with Jennifer Hay of TDWI.
If you prefer in-person business intelligence training, TDWI has its educational conferences. And, if you really mean business intelligence, i.e., reading data and turning it into information and knowledge, as opposed to the entire discipline of business intelligence, which includes data warehousing, master data management, etc., I would look at Business Objects training. Good luck!
