Wait wait, this is not applicable for all the situations. There are a lot of other factors, for which this salary varies.

So, let me introduce you with this career.

“Business Analysis is the task of understanding business change needs, assessing the business impact of those changes, capturing, analyzing and documenting requirements and supporting the communication and delivery of requirements with relevant stakeholders.”

I know, you are now too much interested to know the detailed salary in this career. So let’s now start.

Salary of a Business Analyst (In Detail):

As I’ve mentioned before, that salary of business analyst varies upon different factors. The main & Foremost of these factors is the Skillset you have. Normally a fresher will not be much skilled that a company would prefer. So, naturally, he/she will not get a higher package from a good company.

The next factor you may say is your knowledge in the particular domain. It’s also an important aspect of a business analyst to have. If you have sufficient knowledge in a particular domain, that is required by a particular company, then it’ll surely bring bright opportunity in your career.

For an example, if the ‘Innovation & Technology’ domain is in trading and lot of companies are getting projects on it,  then it is clear the Business Analyst with ‘Innovation & Technology’ domain is going to get a better pay/increment than a BA (Business Analyst) with other domain.

Business Intelligence and Analytics

            Next, experience plays one of the biggest facts for salary. Not as a business analyst, but everywhere, if you have more experience, you’ll be preferred more, and your salary will be high.

Another big factor is the Location. If you move from a city to another city, you’ll see a huge difference in the average pays.

For example, if you move from Delhi to Ahmedabad, you can see, a 2-year-experienced Business Analyst was getting an average of 7 Lakhs Per Annum in Delhi, whereas his salary was only 3.5 Lakhs Per Annum in Ahmedabad. So, its clear that Location matters in the change in pay scale in this career.

Education is also a great factor here. You can find in the Job description, that recruiters prefer B.E. with Computer / IT + MBA is preferred than others. And also, Masters are more preferred than normal Bachelors (Fresher Levels)

            Next, it comes to Communication / Language. All companies tend to have clients from different countries. So a Business Analyst who has the ability to communicate with various countries’ clients like Japanese, Chinese, Germany, etc, would be an advantage where the company has clients from this country.

Certification has a little value, but it gives you some advantage over others when required. So, it’s better to have a certificate in Business Analysis.

            Finally, need to say, that a different company provides different salaries. So it really varies from company to company.

This all factors will affect the salary. But, for the better conclusion, I’ve gathered a set of data, where you’ll find the approx salary of Business Analysts that are paid by different companies in India
