How to become a business analyst?
Hello all, I'm currently in my first year of college and I hope to one day become a business analyst. My current plan is to major in accounting and am hoping on an internship as a BA to gain some experienceing and possibly land a job. Is this a good plan or is there more I should do? Thanks!

there are not a lot of job openings for that type of position - I think I have met one person in my life (25+ yrs post college) with that job title - stick to accounting - you do enough analysis there
