Career path for a business analyst
 

Feeling Stuck As a BA?

Read on to move ahead in your BA career.

Yes, you have been a Business Analyst, done and lived the analyst role, been through all this, now it doesn’t seem so interesting anymore.

Is this something you have been as a Senior BA and BA Managers been through?

So what next?

Here is a very broad guideline for the career progression of a BA.

 

BA Career Paths

Four common career paths BAs can pursue are:

  1. Business analysis
  2. Product management
  3. Project management
  4. Consulting

However having said that it depends on the person’s interest, domain/technical knowledge, interest to learn new concepts and risk-taking ability which determines largely the career progress.

If you are risk-taking and open to learn new concepts/domain you can change your domain and move to a new field and establish yourself to be a good player in the field. This gives you good exposure and makes your career prospects broader. That makes you a good candidate for a senior executive position.

If you love what you are good at and aim to become an expert in the same without changing gears then you can master your domain including getting into other areas in the same domain. This can include having a good hold on the tools and products prevalent in the domain. This can make you a great specialist and unique in the field, which is invaluable for your career.

You can make yourself a great consultant in a particular field and can think of working with multiple clients to give them a part of your time and expert guidance. In return, this gives you the flexibility and the rich experience of working with multiple clients.

There is no better time than now to start something good.

Go and Kiss the world as per your taste and interest, the world is all yours if you can make it and believe in yourself.
