What is it about?
A business analyst (BA) is considered one of the most in-demand data-driven jobs, while library and information science (LIS) degrees are evolving and looking for new paths to attract students. Are LIS-related degrees suitable for future BAs? And how can LIS-related studies be transformed into a better degree course for future BAs? I analysed job offers for BAs and compared them with learning outcomes on LIS-related studies to find answers.
