Below are the common myths about the work and profile of a Business Analyst:

1. Business Analysts Do Only Number Crunching:Some people think that their profile is all about dealing with numbers and does not involve any business decision related work.

2. You Need To Have IT Background:It is understandable that a Business Analyst does need to work on computer software and tools but those can be learnt once you start working there. No company expects you to come from IT background. It can be a help at times if you have prior knowledge of a particular tool, but that again is not a mandatory condition.

3. You Need To Have MBA:Again, companies prefer those who are from MBA background but that's not the absolute criteria. Specially in India, companies prefer engineering graduates for their sharp analytical skills.

4. Business Analysts Only Go For Project Management:This notion is again prevalent among many people. Although, business analysts have the option to for project management, this is not the only area they are restricted to. They go for consulting, policy making, administration, and even senior analyst roles.
