how to get my 1st BA job 


I am a software engineer,with one year work experience with Infosys Technologies in India. I am now looking at business analyst position. I was convinced to take up a course and then apply for BA jobs. But the problem is , I hardly find any online courses. Does anyone have any idea about the Villanova university "Master in Business Analyst " program. Will it be worth taking this course and then applying for jobs. I am currently not employed as i recentle relocated to US with my family and am really finding it difficult to apply for entry level BA jobs without experience.

Hi Rupaguru

Sorry i havent heard of the course you mentioned (I'm in the UK) so i cannot comment on it however i am a BA/BSA with no formal training to speak of. I was lucky and fell into a BSA role at a previous company and have managed to convince people i can do the job. If you really cant tailor you CV to make you sound like a BA and at least get you into a few interviews then im afraid the only way in will be to start right at the bottom or to do a few courses.

Good luck

Hi Rupaguru,


I have heard of vilanova university; and it has good credentials well for more you can surely contact them. I would suggest you to take the b2t training courses; and as mentioned in an earlier reply will put you in the interview seat.
