The job of Business Analyst requires a lot of work, preparation and leadership. When it comes to choosing your college major, it's best to have knowledge of the subject by taking the courses that your high school has to offer. Leyden has a long list of Business classes that help prepare students for the career of a Business Analyst. Two courses that stood out more to me would be Entrepreneurship and Sports and Marketing. Entrepreneurship allows student to apply business owning techniques by job shadowing and business simulations. Sports and Marketing teaches students the basic principles of marketing: product, promotion, price and distribution.
