    The best way for you to determine what classes you need to take would be by going to a job posting site like careerbuilder.com and search for systems analyst jobs. Look at several descriptions to get a good feel as to what is needed. You need to be familiar with the Microsoft .NET framework, which is related to C# or C++. Also, make sure you know everything SQL. With knowledge of .NET and SQL and a degree, you will be a successful systems analyst.
