Hi all,

I am looking for some guidance, I am 3 years experienced Business Analyst from a company (BFSI industry) which followed the scrum framework.

My question is should I go for PSM 1 or PSPO 1 considering careers perspectives?

If you dream of being an astronaut or a chef in the future, neither is a good option. Where do YOU want to be in 2 years?

Neither seem appropriate for the BA role. The role of Business Analyst is not defined in the scrum guide. 
What has helped me in the past is to check in linkedIn what certifications people have, that is how I found out about PSM1. So, I will consider check what other Business analyst (specially people that you respect) have studied and continue from there.
