Question

Hi,

I am a senior in college majoring in Management Information Systems.

I’ve recently interned with a company as a Business Analyst and decided that’s what I want to be when I grow up.

I am wondering if there is any certifications or training I should do before I graduate in May 2013.

If so- are there some that are more prestigious than others? Any to stay away from?

Obviously I want to gain more knowledge, have a better understanding and develop some useful skills before graduating and becoming a BA.
