How Can I Train to Become a Management Analyst?

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), while a bachelor's degree can qualify you for entry-level positions, most employers look for prospective management analysts with a master's degree. Bachelor's degree programs in management consulting are rare; however, you can find closely related programs in management, economics, business administration, marketing, accounting and statistics.

You can also find master's degree programs in these areas, such as the Master of Arts in Management or Master of Science in Management and Leadership. Undergraduate and graduate degree programs are available online and on campus. Master's programs may also require you to attend workshops, either live or via the Internet and submit a capstone project.

What Can You Tell Me about Employment and Wage Projections?

The BLS projected that employment for management analysts would increase by 14% from 2014-2024 (www.bls.gov). This may be due to organizations having an increased necessity for more intense and varied analysis of their operating procedures.
