36 Alternative Job Titles for Business Analysts

One of the frustrating realities in our profession is that job titles are used inconsistently for business analyst jobs. Many, many job opportunities are really business analyst roles but simply have alternative job titles.

Recently I was asked, “What job titles do business analysts actually have?” So I decided to create this article with a list of other business analyst job titles.

(By the way, if you are new here, you’ll want to sign up to receive our absolutely free workshop for business analysts.)

Of course, once you find a job opportunity with one of these titles, you’ll want to look at the actual responsibilities to see if it’s really, truly, a business analyst role, but this list of titles should get you started even further expanding the options available to you as a business analyst.
