With its latest certificate Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)®, the Project Management Institute (PMI)® demonstrates the importance of business analysis in projects.  A deep understanding of the processes surrounding the project requirements is undoubtedly very helpful for all employees in the project, but it is indispensable for those who are responsible for the content of the requirements.

The special training in the four-day course (you will receive 36 PDUs!) is based on licensed material from our U.S. partner Watermark Learning, whose managing directors are involved in the design of this new area on behalf of PMI®. In this respect, you will receive up-to-date and very well-founded material as well as 90 days’ access to the online exam simulator with over 900 sample questions, which will play a key role in your successful passing of the exam. Because only a training under almost realistic conditions makes you fast enough to answer 200 questions in 240 minutes.

Furthermore, this course teaches strategies with which you can “crack” the sometimes difficult questions faster and better, such as exclusion procedures, negation, mnemonic abbreviations or other logical conclusions.

One of masVenta’s basic rules is that trainers of our certificate preparation courses are themselves holders of at least the respective certificate.

Anyone who wants to pass the PMI-PBA® exam. In principle, anyone who has at least 4500 hours of experience in business analysis (if they have an academic degree, otherwise 7500h) can gain admission to the exam.


In order to facilitate the absorption of the large amount of information needed to pass the PMI-PBA® exam, the course includes a mixture of lecture, discussion, exercises and several practice exams. Be prepared to take practice tests for exam simulation purposes. Discussions will then take place to clarify why answers were right or wrong. Many participants find this one of the most helpful parts of the course. Methods for remembering and retaining knowledge are also taught. In this way, participants are optimally prepared to retain the critical information necessary to pass the PMI-PBA® exam.

I have completed several courses at masVenta. I attended the first course Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® Exam Preparation Live Online Extended in the online version. At that time, the online course gave me the opportunity to combine my continuing education with my everyday professional life. The combination of weekly webinars and learning phases (homework) on the weekends also helped me to prepare for the exam. I attended the second course Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® Exam Preparation in a compact seminar in Frankfurt a.M., the small working groups were characterized by a lively professional discourse among the participants. The teaching materials were of high quality and very detailed. I can only recommend the courses of Mr. Wendt and his team.
