What does a business analyst do? What course do you take to become a business analyst?

I came across a chart showing the avarage salaries of business analysts in IT/Computer software/Computer hardware. I do not know what a business analyst does exactly. What course should I take in college to become a business analyst. Currently I'm planing on getting a degree in Business with IT in college, will that enable me to become a business analyst?

I would say do something like Finance and Management Information Systems. Business Analysts do a study of how the systems of a business function and then propose solutions....not very easy, but very financially rewarding once you get to the big leagues.
