Systems analysts need to have practical knowledge in networking, graphical user interfaces, database programming and design, software and application development, and Internet manipulation. Systems analysts should be  exceptionally good at communication(like reading,writing,interviewing,in reading  and writing technical business documents),because they need to deal with different business people and solve their problems.Ocasionally in the process of solving business problems systems analysts come across various documents which should be kept confidential. So, systems analysts need good code of ethics in addition to having good knowledge of information technology and systems.

Systems analysts plans and develops computer systems for businesses and scientific institutions. A computer systems analyst is the person who arrives at an information technology pathway for an organization to achieve its goals. After all, computers, information technology, and the internet are the order of the day. The computer systems analyst designs and develops the relevant software systems required for the task and acquires the required hardware for the software to run on. To solve different business problems, systems analysts first identify and analyze the problem. Then they find many solutions for a particular problem and best of all the solutions is implemented. Finally, a test run of the application is seen to test whether the problem is solved. Otherwise systems analyst goes for an alternate solution.

Educational qualifications to enter this field:

  • Bachelor’s degrees in computer science, advanced mathematics, engineering, or physical sciences.
  • Bachelor degree in management information systems.
  • Masters in business administration, with specialization in IT.

Diploma in computer science or great deal of programming experience.

Mathematics is one of the oldest and most fundamental sciences. Mathematicians use mathematical theory, computational techniques, algorithms, and the latest computer technology to solve economic, scientific, engineering, and business problems. Mathematics is broadly ramified into theoretical mathematics and applied mathematics.

Theoretical mathematicians lay more inclination on advanced mathematical knowledge by developing new principles and recognizing previously unknown relationships between existing principles of mathematics. Here importance is not given to practical applications of mathematics. Most of the theoretical mathematicians are contributing most of their time in teaching and research.

Applied mathematicians work on practical problems, analyze different elements in a particular problem and reduce them into mathematical variables. Sometimes they use computers to analyze the variables. Applied mathematicians use theories and techniques, such as mathematical modeling and computational methods, to formulate and solve practical problems in business, government, engineering, and the physical, life, and social sciences. For example, they may analyze the most efficient way to schedule airline routes between cities, the effects and safety of new drugs, the aerodynamic characteristics of an experimental automobile, or the cost-effectiveness of alternative manufacturing processes.

Educational qualifications to be a mathematician:

  • PhD in mathematics is the minimum qualification to be a mathematician.
  • Bachelor’s degree in mathematics can be useful for pre- primary, primary and secondary school teaching.

Actuarial science takes mathematics and statistics and applies them to finance and insurance. Actuarial science includes a number of interrelating disciplines, including probability and statistics, finance, and economics.

There is always uncertainty prevailing in the environment and some events may cause undesirable outcomes. The impact of these undesirable outcomes may be in the form of financial losses or emotional impacts. Actuaries evaluate the yet to happen events and work upon the ways to reduce the risk of undesirable outcomes which are result of undesirable events. Actuaries manage risk by combination of their strong analytical skills, business knowledge and understanding of human behavior to design and manage programs that control risk.

In this fast-changing world, with new risks and the need for ever-more creative ways to tackle them, there are constant opportunities for personal and professional growth in an actuarial career, and the pleasure of life-long learning.
