In case you have heard that Business Analysts are confined to office spaces then you are very well mistaken. This is absolutely not the case. You will have plenty of opportunities to explore the world as a Business Analyst and you won't get bored of the job. Let me explain them one by one:

1. As a Business Analyst, you are often required to visit your clients and gather the requirements. In these circumstances you do have to travel a lot. Therefore you won't be confined to a desk but will be traveling across the states and countries. If you like traveling this is the job for you.

2. Business Analysts usually work in consulting firms where networking is considered as important element of the work place. You just cannot sit there and work. You will have to roam around, meet your colleagues from time to time and maintain healthy relationships with them. Thus it is not a lonely affair but shared work along with a nice social life at workplace.

3. You will have a lot of work as a Business Analyst. You will have to meet your team members frequently and solve the bugs and other issues. It is a team work not individual. Therefore the busy schedule won't let you get bored.

4. You will also be conducting training sessions for the freshers. There you will be sharing your expertise and knowledge with them and interact with them on regular basis. Therefore your job is not restricted to your desk.

5. There are many meetings conducted throughout the day. As a business analyst, you will have to attend them as a mandatory task, you just cannot ignore them. But meetings are fun too. They help you to share your findings and problems with senior members who can better assist you in the work. That way you learn to work collaboratively in a team setting.
