In a world where data is king, the person who understands its meaning unlocks true business potential.
It’s one thing to understand how to extract data but how do you communicate this information back to humans when you’re not a robot? (You’re not a robot, are you?)
When the world is swimming in data and it feels like AI is getting ready to take over, if you can look at the numbers and tell their story, you’ll hold powerful insights in your grasp and become Lord of the Data Key (forget Rings).
Data and storytelling? Don’t worry if writing words is not your thing. If you prefer to surround yourself with stats, see patterns in everything or are more of a visual learner (rather than a word-y one), you could craft some epic data tales that transform how the world operates.
And, as every business – profit or purpose-based - is hungry for data insights (and what to do with them all), as a business analyst you could steer business digital transformations in a never-boring, always-stimulating career.
What does it take to become a business analyst?

- Engage in a real industry experience. With a Swinburne bachelor degree, it’s guaranteed.
- Join an industry body like the Australian chapter of International Institute of Business Analysis to meet future colleagues, friends, mentors, and employers.
