What are the Qualifications for Becoming an IT Business Analyst

Information Technology (IT) Business Analysts play an important role by being responsible for their organizations technological development and direction i.e. they improve production, cost-effectiveness and workflow through their company’s business information and technical systems.

What does a business analyst do?

I am majoring in business intelligence and I am looking for an internship in a relevant field.

I have a job right now working with a CRM doing strategic analysis and forecasting for a non-profit organization.

I have heard this is similar to what a business analyst does. Could I get this job with my background (MAJOR: Business Intelligence, MINOR: Computer Science),

Are these jobs in demand? What do they pay? HOW can I break into this field?

Thank you.
