Business Analyst Jobs

Business Analyst Jobs Overview


Business analysts are sometimes referred to as management analysts, business continuity planners or business operations specialists. A business analyst identifies and analyzes an organization's business processes for the purposes of building a software application or platform, improving productivity, minimizing risk or waste, or developing a new product or service line. Business analysts must interface with several departments and job titles to glean information about how a process operates, and analysts are often involved in high-level discussions with company owners, clients, upper management and other important stakeholders. Similar analyst jobs include positions such as Commercial Analysts.

Daily tasks of a business analyst might include:
  • Attending client and stakeholder meetings
  • Presenting process documentation
  • Creating case and process diagrams
  • Coordinating projects
  • Interviewing business associates
  • Writing documents

Business Analyst Education Requirements


The minimum educational requirement for a business analyst position is a four-year degree from an accredited institution of higher learning. However, many business analysts also hold professional certifications, such as the CMC, CBAP or PMP. A master's degree may be a prerequisite for some analyst positions. The position of business analyst is a fertile training ground for future project managers and others with management aspirations.

Business Analyst Jobs Outlook


The general outlook for jobs in business analysis is bright. Business analysts and management consultants can expect to see a 19 percent rate of growth through the year 2020, a higher rate of growth than most other jobs. The demand for business analysts is driven by companies and organizations desiring to control costs of production and waste. Analysts assist companies in finding ways to improve efficiency on the production line and control costs by reducing waste and mediating risks.
