Career Development Tips for Business Analysts

Presented by Rick Hefner, PhD

Program Director, Center for Technology and Management Education


Are you thinking about the next step in your business analysis career? Do you know what actions to take to move your career forward? Or what forward even looks like?

Join us for an interactive presentation to prepare yourself for your dream job. Dr. Rick Hefner will guide you in identifying possibilities in the BA career ladder and related fields. He will examine the technical qualifications, business experience, and soft skills needed, and outline practical, low cost ways to acquire them.  

You will:

  • Identify possible BA career paths and choose those which align with you individual interests and aptitudes
  • Review the core business analyst skills needed and how to develop them
  • Identify potential lateral career paths for the BA and the additional skills needed
  • Understand what skills and behaviors are needed for a senior BA position (and why you may not want one!)

Key Point: Job satisfaction for a business analyst requires evaluating the career options available, deciding which one(s) to pursue, and taking the necessary steps to achieve the skills and experience needed.
