The project analyst provides critical data support to a technical team. Research and analysis functions may include budget tracking and financial forecasting, project evaluation and monitoring, maintaining compliance with corporate and public regulations, and performing any data analysis relevant to project tasks. Project analysts define key performance parameters and create regular variance reports to track progress.
A bachelor's degree in computer science, management information systems, or business administration is the standard qualification for an analyst position. A combination of an associate-level computer science degree and several years' experience may also offer entry into project analysis. To progress into a project manager or leader role, certification as a Project Management Professional (PMP) often helps.
