Which is the best business analyst certification, PMI, PBA, or CBAP?

PMI offers PMI-PBA certification which recognizes an individual’s expertise in business analysis. This examination measures and evaluates the specific knowledge of a candidate to function as a business analysis professional.

From IIBA viewpoint business analysis is all about understanding how a business solution will align with the day-to-day operations of a business. This is not to say that PMI has no interest in helping organizations to improve their core business operations, or that the IIBA has no interest in supporting the program/project management.
