Career as BA 

Hi,

I am from India.I am currently doing MBA in systems(MIS) from a reputed university. I have completed my graduation in chemistry.

I always had inclination towards I.T but was never interested in programming. My question is will my background be an obsatcle in becoming a good  B.A.

P.S   I am thankful to this forum that  a  lot is discussed of B.A  which is scarce here.

No background should be an obstacle to becoming a good business analyst.  I have met great BAs with a variety of backgrounds: IT, programming, music, business, social sciences, finance.

The main differentiator is what do you do to achieve your goals and how hard you work at it.  Basically, nobody becomes a good business analyst overnight and without working hard at it (learn, do, learn, do, and learn some more).  Your learning can come from: mentors, books, training courses, webinars, magazines, etc.

Re: Career as BA 

Because you have a chemistry degree you should see if you can find a Junior BA slot in a chemistry related field.  A B.A. with "domain knowlege" has a leg up over one who has to learn it "from scratch."
