Which should I Study first? Data Analyst in Python or Business Analyst

I recently got a scholarship from Dataquest and am confused about which to do first. I cannot decide between a Business Analyst path or a Data Analyst in Python path. I welcome any advice from you guys. Thank you.

I’d google around and read about the job descriptions for data analyst vs. business analyst. Which path do you think you’re more interested in? Personally, I think the data analyst path is more comprehensive in the kinds of skills you learn, so I’d go for that one, but you really can’t go wrong, in either case you’ll learn valuable skills that you can take with you for the rest of your career.

Hi @badjei.thompson,

You can find useful this article (mine :yum:).

Thank you @Johnsonk51502

Thank you @Elena_Kosourova. Your article is very helpful. I think I would start with the data analyst in python path due to my engineering background and love of math and statistics. I would then use these skills to undertake the business analyst path.
