Can someone like me with BA in Zoology and Anthropology work as a DA or BA? 

Thanks for taking this post. I have a science back ground, though not a BS per say.  I am interested starting out as a Data Analyst, unfortunately I can exactly afford to pay for any more college, can I go to any chapter meeting in my hometown? Do you have any suggestions on what someone like me can do? Thank you for your time.

Re: Can someone like me with BA in Zoology and Anthropology work as a DA or BA? 

First of all: yes - there is no reason why your degree should prevent you from becoming a business analyst in the future.  Also - there is not need for you pursue another college degree.  You could always decide to pursue a masters degree at a later time.

The reality though is that you don't have any experience nor education in business analysis. Therefore, I would suggest that you get started but investing in a good introductory course in business analysis (ideally instructor lead).  This will help you not only gain a good understanding of the profession but will also provide you with the opportunity to discuss more details with the instructor and fellow students.

Best of luck in your future endeavors!

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
