PMI’s first-ever certification for the rapidly-expanding field of business analysis saw a stellar first year. If you haven’t already, explore this exciting credential and consider joining your peers—and gaining the unique advantages that PMI offers.

The PMI-PBA® certification is ideal for professionals whose role involves business or process analysis, or the management of teams involved in product development.

To be eligible for the exam, you must meet one of the two following requirements:

1. High school diploma (DES or global equivalent), at least 7,500 hours of experience in business analysis, and 2,000 hours of experience within a project team, gained in the last 8 years in both cases.


2. Four-year degree (bachelor’s or global equivalent), at least 4,500 hours of experience in business analysis, and 2,000 hours of experience within a project team, gained in the last 8 years in both cases.

It is also mandatory to have 35 hours of formal specialized training in business analysis.

Experience in project management can be included in the 7,500 or 4,500 hours of experience in business analysis. Active PMP® or PgMP® members meet this requirement.
