Desperately need advice from senior Business Analysts/Data Analysts 

Hello everyone! I am lucky to find this forum! So without any delays :

I recently completed my bachelors in computer science from a well reputed university in my country. Unfortunately, I am a bad programmer by nature. Even during my last exams, I was not sure that I should apply for development job, qa job or ba job! I cracked an interview in a very good IT company and have been working there for 5 months. But slowly and gradually I realized that my doubt was correct that programming is not for me. Even if I hustle day and night for the next 2 years, I will still be a mediocre programmer. So I have decided that I would do something which I enjoy doing. 

During my bachelors my biggest strength as compared to all my friends were my presentation and communication skills. I got A grades in them. I love researching on topics and explaining them in the most easiest manner even if the topic is of AI or machine learning. I love to listen to people and think acording to their perspective. I love leading things, motivating my juniors and planning things way before. 

These all traits make me convinced that Business Analyst is something which I should try. Along with this as a side learning I will build up my Data Analysis skills by doing certifications etc. But I am not sure about Data Analyst, maybe business analyst role would be enough for me. But learning things is not a bad thing I guess. There is a very cool guy who has worked as a business analyst and data analyst too : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIbL4aSUIas

So here I am with :

1) Bs Computer Science  2) 5 months(and counting) experience as Associate Software Engineer

Now I am doing some certifications from Linkedin Learning related to business analyst. I will provide list of courses and would need advice from you guys that which certifications i should complete quickly. 

Also I have to think ahead too. Should I do an Mba from a well reputed institute from my country and save money in my country or should I look for scholarships from abroad for any relavent masters program. Since I want myself to be earning in abroad where there are good oppurtunities for BAs.

Thanks a lot! Waiting for your precious advices! 

Note : The only thing which scares me is of getting unemployed since I am sole earner of house. There are plently of jobs of developers but not of BA.

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
