Re: Information Needed 

Hi KR,

Given your degrees and Finance background, you have an excellent starting point for a career in business analysis.

In order to get started quickly, I would highly suggest an introductory course in business/systems analysis which would provide you with a strong foundation.

There aren't any comprehensive eBooks to download for free but you can take a look in our Business Analysis Templates/Aides directory for many related free resources.

Also, there are many great books on business analysis for only a few dolars including the BABOK.

Best of luck to you in your career change plans!

Re: Information Needed 

 Hi KR,

your qualification and work experiance is more than enough to get you enter as a BA. AND If you are looking to enhance your skills and looking to enter into Management, then BA training is best for you. This is the first step to get enter into management level.

After getting an experiance of 3-4 year as Business analysis you can go for the certification of CCBA OR CBAP.
