Real Stories

Real Transformations

Siby Varghese
Business Analyst

I discovered that business analysis was a booming career option and wanted to transition from my current job to a business analyst. For getting the proper knowledge and skillsets, I decided to pursue ECBA training and certification.

I would like to thank Adaptive's mentors for helping me understand the material. It would not have been possible without all the support and motivation extended by the team. All the tips and tricks shared were extremely helpful. The practice tests were a great help in preparing for the actual exam. I cleared my exam with ease.

I landed a job as an associate BA during my training itself.

Thank you, Adaptive, for all the support.

Kickstarted BA career in 1 month
Martin Motyka
Business Analyst

I have always dreamed of landing a job as a Business Analyst. So, I decided to appear for the ECBA certification exam and chose Adaptive as my training partner.

With Adaptive's insightful mentorship, I cleared the exam on the first attempt. After a lot of hard work studying for the exam and job hunting, I was able to land a rewarding business analyst job.

I would like to thank Adaptive US for facilitating a learning environment that guided me to achieve my goals.

Landed a rewarding BA job
Catherine Mastrostefano
Senior Business Analyst

I used to work as a Business Consultant for quite some time. With aspirations of expanding my role to a Business Analyst, I decided to take up the ECBA certification as it is the best option for entry-level BAs. I enrolled with Adaptive US for my ECBA training, which was one of the best decisions. The ECBA course was very informative, and I was able to pass my exam with ease.

Adaptive has certified mentors and great resources for anyone wishing to undergo training on business analysis.

They have a great team and are very responsive and ready to help at any hour.

After my ECBA certification, I got a new job as a BA with a 25 percent salary hike from my previous job. The BA training gave me a grip on all business basics and gave me confidence at work.

Bagged New BA Job with 25% hike
Ineha Thind
Analyst

After completing my BTech & MBA, I started working as an HR professional. Before moving to Canada, I found out about business analysis as a great career option. The BA role piqued my interest and I realized this was exactly what I wanted to do. However, getting a BA job in a new country was difficult as it called for the right knowledge and skillsets.

While looking for a BA course I found Adaptive US and enrolled for their ECBA training. The training was perfect as it gave me a sound understanding of the BA concepts. With my newfound understanding of the BA role, I secured a permanent job as a Systems Analyst in the company that I was interning with. I was confident that I was heading in the right direction and within 2 months of getting ECBA certified, I bagged my first full-time BA job.

I am ever thankful to Adaptive as their ECBA training propelled my BA career and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to become a BA.

Attending the ECBA course gave me more clarity on what could be the right approach for a BA in a given situation. LN Mishra your style of organized delivery of content and making us understand concepts with live scenarios made it quite easy for me to apply at work and also for my certification exam. Thanks a lot :) Thanking Adaptive US team.

What is the ECBA exam passing score?

There is no official data from IIBA to answer this question as IIBA does not disclose this information. However, from our experience and the experience of our past ECBA participants, we know that it is safe to assume that the ECBA exam passing score is more than 70%. Hence, we suggest targeting 85%+ in the ECBA mock tests in order to be successful in the ECBA final exam.

Can I do self-paced study and pass the ECBA exam?

Although IIBA® allows one to take the ECBA exam without any classroom training, it will be really hard to understand BABoK v3.0 without the help of an expert instructor. BABoK V3 is 500+ pages long and quite complex to follow. An expert instructor can help you to understand BABoK v3.0 very quickly. In addition, instructor led sessions give good insight on how to prepare for the exam, clarify doubts, provide practical tips and tricks based on exam experience, provide access to BA tools

ECBA self-study is not recommended for the following reasons:

  • You need 21 PD hours for the IIBA application process.
  • Questions are knowledge based and requires good understanding of concepts, tasks and techniques, which comes only with the guidance, and mentoring of experienced coaches and study materials.
  • Time management can be a challenge for those who are not well versed with the subject and the exam prep tricks and tips from our coaches helps our participants to sail through this challenge.
How will I know if I passed the ECBA exam?

The ECBA exam candidates will be notified immediately on screen once they submit their computer-based exam. For those who fail the exam, they will be provided with additional information, specifically the Knowledge Areas that require their attention.

How many times can I attempt the exam?

You may take the exam up to 3 times within the 1-year application expiry period. There is no wait time between exam sittings. If you take the exam all 3 times and do not pass, you must wait until your application expires before you can reapply.

Four common career paths BAs can pursue are:

  1. Business analysis

  2. Product management

  3. Project management

  4. Consulting

However having said that it depends on the person's interest, domain/technical knowledge, interest to learn new concepts and risk-taking ability which determines largely the career progress.

If you are risk-taking and open to learn new concepts/domain you can change your domain and move to a new field and establish yourself to be a good player in the field. This gives you good exposure and makes your career prospects broader. That makes you a good candidate for a senior executive position.

If you love what you are good at and aim to become an expert in the same without changing gears then you can master your domain including getting into other areas in the same domain. This can include having a good hold on the tools and products prevalent in the domain. This can make you a great specialist and unique in the field, which is invaluable for your career.

You can make yourself a great consultant in a particular field and can think of working with multiple clients to give them a part of your time and expert guidance. In return, this gives you the flexibility and the rich experience of working with multiple clients.

There is no better time than now to start something good.

Go and Kiss the world as per your taste and interest, the world is all yours if you can make it and believe in yourself.
