Research Analyst Jobs FAQs

How do I get experience as a research analyst?

You can get experience as a research analyst during college through classes and internship experiences. A person can also seek entry-level research jobs and volunteer work to build up their knowledge and various skills and tools to succeed as a research analyst.

An excellent way to gain experience as a research analyst is to choose a degree program in college that will provide training and knowledge in research. Typical programs include mathematics, economics, and business. However, a person could study history or even philosophy and easily transition that experience into a role as a research analyst.

Learn more about this question

What degree do you need to be a research analyst?

You need a bachelor's degree to be a research analyst. Typical fields of study that research analysts have included business, economics, and mathematics.

Research analysts can be found everywhere and in any industry, not just the financial sector. Therefore, nearly any academic background could viably serve a prospective researcher, as long as the researcher has the requisite technical, mathematical, and analytical skills.

However, more often, especially for more active research analyst roles, employers seek out people who have a master's degree. A research analyst with a master's degree in either operations research or management science is often preferred over other candidates.

While pursuing a master's degree in operations research, a person will take math programming, methods, statistics, and data classes. Meanwhile, in a program for management science, a person will take courses that involve systems and models, analysis, optimization, logistics, and engineering.

These master's degree programs prepare a research analyst to pursue higher management or more specialized research roles.

What is the career path for a research analyst?

The career path for a research analyst is varied. Typically, this path starts as a research assistant and becomes a research specialist, research manager, or research director. The specific direction any given research analyst takes depends on their unique set of interests and aptitude.

Entry-level research associates work under the direction of a more senior research analyst creating data models and conducting research. New hires may work with a variety of analysts for months as a general introduction to the job.

Most research associates are eventually assigned to a single working group covering their area of research within the organization. Once they have gained more experience and excellent performance, associates can move into analyst positions, taking more active roles in the research process.

After this, they can move into more specialized research roles or management roles depending on their interests and career progression.
