      You guys, there is no specific degree that will get you directly into a job. If you're looking for what degree to get that is centered on context knowledge, then business, IT, and statistics could be a good degree for this career. But, there's been Business Analysts who have a wide range of degrees or even no degree.

      Hey, I am an IB Y2 student and will begin my undergraduate degree in the second half of 2022. I love the job of business analyst and truly desire to be one. However, I am a bit confused in choosing the right degree for this career. Should I do a
      Bachelor of Economics degree
      OR
      Bachelor of Commerce degree (major in information systems, etc)

      Which would provide a more clear path to becoming a business analyst?

      Hope to receive a reply by anyone. Thank you🙏🏻

      This is not a very good description of what one does. Daily tasks . Iike details. If I was a new employee…I would be LOST as to what I need to "do". Like "answer the phone". That's clear. "Optimize this service". What DOES that mean? That means nothing to me. Analyze Excel. What does that mean? Ugh.

      Please Donna video That is an hour long…SHOWING ME what you Do

      What degree in college do you get to become a data business analyst? I see business administration with a minor in business analytics in the college near me but I want to make sure this equips me to become a data analyst.

      This video is good, unlike other day to day job where they start waking up, brushing teeth etc for first 5 mins and doesn't explain the job in detail
