A business analyst is a good solid position to gain experience across a wide spectrum of skills. You can work to project manage, lead teams or become an expert in high leverage areas.
2 areas with solid demand and need would be:
1. Business intelligence tools and methodologies (this is the newer one)
2. Supply Chain
Mid to large companies and Consulting agencies are always looking for good people with a desire to contribute in these areas. This career also allow you to have some choice on a more structured position at one place or if consulting is more to your liking it can allow for more travel and variety of work.
