Career Shift- from a Perl Developer to Business Analyst

Hi Everyone

I am a working professional with 1.5 years of experience in Networking (Routing and Switching) and 3 years of experience in Perl and Postgres. I want to shift my career to Business Analytics (basically a less coding profile). I was looking into some of the Business Analytics courses provided by institutes like ISB, IIM and Great lakes. I have few queries:

  1. Where to start?
  2. Is having a formal education (dedicated programs offered by institutes) really worth the time and investment?
  3. What other courses can I pursue to make this career shift?

Any help in this direction would mean a lot.

Thanks in advance
Noopur Mittal
