How To Become BA or Data Analyst With M.Sc. in Physics Degree 

Hi,

        I am about to complete My Master's Degree (M.Sc) in Physics from a Canadian university. I am Good at Statistics and Mathematics too. I have some experience of Data analysis while doing my thesis research. I also have some basic level knowledge on Phython programming. I like to play with data. I came to know that a physics graduate can work as BA or data analyst. So I also want to become one. I have no financial or related experience.

       Now I want to know where can i start from? What kind of job should i look to start my career in the field? Does it require any certification for this career? If yes, what should I study in addition for that? Actually I don't  want  to waste my time just studying because this M.Sc. is my double M.Sc. , I already have M.sc. degree in physics from my home country. Now I want to start my career seriously.

      Thanking in advance for any suggestions.

Dear DKC,

It looks like you are looking for a job on data analysis and/or analytics.  You will need some prior experience or training.

I suggest you take a couple of courses in data mining (SQL, etc.) and analytics.

Take a look at our webinars and look for those that deal with data, analytics, or business intelligence.  It should give you a good feel for the type of skills and tools you will want to focus on.

Data and Analytics Webinars, and more...

Wishing you the best!

Sincerely,

Adrian

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-...
