Express Entry: Education and Work Experience

Do grades matter in Educational Credential Assessments

Question [Holthe Tilleman LLP website]:

Hi Mark,   I am in the process of applying for PR to Canada. I am finishing my MBA in December and I am currently working in the IT sector as a Business Analyst  (California, US).

My questions are:

  1. Does it matter what my grades were when I completed my Masters?
  2. Is a Business Analyst considered as a skilled job in Canada ?
  3. I have 5+ years of experience in Banking and IT , would that help my case?
