Qualifications of pricing analysts
In addition to being fascinated about pricing trends, a keen attention to detail, and a love for research, there are some qualifications you need to earn before becoming a pricing analyst.
Most pricing analysts need a bachelor's degree to get their foot in the door. These degrees are often centered around mathematics, finance, accounting or statistics.
Master’s degree (Optional)
Although you don’t need a master’s degree to get a pricing analyst job, pricing analysts with an MBA or technical degree add significant value to client interactions and data analysis.
