Developing better ways to deliver a service… organize employees… or reach out to customers… management analysts— also called management consultants— advise organizations on how to become more efficient and profitable. Management analysts start by gathering and analyzing information about the problem they are hired to solve. They may conduct interviews, observe processes, and explore a variety of data to decide on the best approach. Based on what they learn, management analysts write reports and make presentations to share their findings and recommend solutions. To ensure success, they follow up once new practices or ideas are implemented. Most management analysts work as consultants on contract with a company for a particular project, writing a proposal to compete for the job, then moving to a new company or project when it’s complete. They generally specialize in a subject area, an industry, or type of government agency. Management analysts often work on tight deadlines, and may travel to their clients. Many work in management and technical consulting organizations, the finance and insurance industry, and government. A bachelor’s degree is required for most entry-level jobs, along with several years’ experience in IT, human resources, or management. Majors in business, economics, political science, psychology, English, or computer science may all be appropriate. Some positions require a MBA.
