So, my DS will be leaving the military in a few months and plans to use the GI Bill to complete his degree. Currently he has AA degree in general studies. In the military, he is in Intelligence and does “analysis.” He enjoys weighing intelligence information and presenting his findings to commanding officers. (He can’t give many more details!) He wants to continue with “analysis” as a career post-military.
I know there are Financial Analysts, Business Analysts, probably Computer Analysts. I’m guessing you start out in the particular field (Finance, Business, Computer) and move up to the point where you are an Analyst…something like a consultant? How can that be an entry-level career? He’s thinking of majoring in English (something he has always enjoyed) and Economics. I’m wondering about a major like Information Science, which seems to have an analysis component.
Any insight on the path to a career as an analyst and the best major to pursue?
