    I am a domestic call center professional for the last 10 years and my basic qualification is MA and pursuing my MBA. I do everything in MS excel. But I am not expert in MS excel. Now my organisation is trying to be six sigma. For that may data analysis are required. I found very interesting. Now I want to be a good Buisiness analyst. Please suggest how to do and what to do be a analyst. But what analyst ? I am not sure.

  • Siddharth Mathur says:

    I am a 17 yrs experience Marketing head interested in big data. I read about it and found it very interesting. I don’t have any programming background, but I am into statically planning and business analysis. I wanted to leverage business analytic s for my clients by providing them accurate and useful reports and predictions based on their clientel data. It would be helpful if you can suggest me a good course. There are few which focus more on concepts like the ones from IIM bangalore and few which focus more on usage of tools. As a person coming from marketing background which no knowledge of JAVA or any programming language which course should I opt for.
    Thanks in advance for all the suggestions.

  • Nikita says:

    Hi Kunal,
    I have 3 years of experience in IT service industry as business analyst. My highest qualification is bachelor of engineering, I guess due to this, I am getting lower pay as compared to industry pay. I am looking forward for switching my career in analytics. However I am confused If I should opt for short term analytics courses offered by jigsaw or similar academies or I should go for Masters programme? considering that my highest qualification in bachelor of engineering.
