Management Skills Like Speaking Skills And Communications
This is not a question, but I think these are good management skills for a business analyst to have:

Hi, I am currently a sociology major with intent to be a business analyst.
You say that you need a engineering degree to be a B.A, but also you can have a business administration degree as well.
The difference between a Business Admin degree and a sociology degree is nil, they are both useless and outdated in today's job market.
While some B.A job postings due prefer those with finance and economic degrees, some just want a bachelors.
So am I doomed?
Business Analysts can come from many different fields of study. The following are key attributes of a successful Business Analyst:
1. Understand how and why a business works. 2. Can handle the math and technical aspects of performing a complex analysis. 3. Can understand and get along with people on all levels.
If your degree(education) covers the above, then you will have a good chance of competing in the field of business analysis.
As a person wanting to enter the field without experience, it is imperative that you get a certification that shows that you actually have some knowledge and specific business analyst study under your belt.
Is a Business Analyst Required To Have All Skills To Become One?

Is a Business Analyst required to have all skills to become one or be called a business analyst?
Very few business analysts have all the skills. Many specialize in particular parts of the field. A general business analyst may well have different skills than a ip business analyst.
As an employer, I would look for a business analyst with an analytical education (MBA, accounting, statistics, engineering, etc.) I would then look for experience working in an analytical field. Finally, I would ascertain the candidates level of business analysis knowledge. In other words, I would be more interested in his/her ability to learn and figure out things than I would their level of knowledge about specific business analysis methodologies. Others may have a different opinion.
