Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® Online

According to PMI research, 51% of completed projects finish within its’ initially scheduled times and 64% of completed projects successfully meet their original goals and business intent.[1] Directly associated to these poor measures is the lack of proper business analysis. According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession®: Requirements Management – A Core Competency for Project and Program Success

“51 million dollars is wasted for every 1 billion spent on projects and programs due to poor requirements management.”[2]

With such alarming statistics, organizations have a sense of urgency to address their ineffective business analysis processes, to mature their requirements practices, and hire business analysts with the right competencies. With the demand for skilled and experienced business analysts on the rise, there has never been a better time to pursue a business analysis credential with PMI.

Students will review the business analysis domains, techniques, knowledge, and skills addressed on the exam and will assess their personal readiness. The PMI-PBA® prep course will help students organize their notes, highlight key areas of importance, consolidate terminology and improve their overall study and exam approach.
