Steps to Becoming a Database Manager

Now let's take a look at the individual steps that you can take to become a database manager, as well as some tips to help your chances of success.

Step 1: Earn a Bachelor's Degree

The BLS states that most database managers have a bachelor's degree. Bachelor's degree programs are available in computer information systems with a concentration in database systems, computer science or in the computer and information sciences. Classes in these 4-year programs cover topics like discrete structures, web page applications, database systems, data structure and mining, databases and distributed systems, data communications, and database management systems.

To really shine above the competition, complete an internship. Some bachelor's degree programs allow students to complete an internship during their studies. These internships introduce students to the type of tasks they may perform as a database administrator. This experience may impress employers during job searches.

Step 2: Work as a Database Developer or Data Analyst

The BLS states that many database administrators begin their careers working as database developers or data analysts. Database developers design and implement database technologies, collect information to put into databases, and analyze database efficiency. Data analysts collect and analyze data contained in databases. Both of these careers require a bachelor's degree.

Furthermore, to make your skills stand out, earn industry certifications. Microsoft, Cisco, and SQL offer database managers the opportunity to earn voluntary certifications in the use of their products. These certifications often require the completion of training programs and the demonstration of proficiency in operating the company's product.

Step 3: Work as a Database Manager

After finishing 1-5 years of work experience, an individual may be qualified to assume a position as a database manager. These managers ensure that databases operate correctly and are easy to use so that data analysts can perform their job duties.

Step 4: Consider Earning a Master's Degree
Although not required to work in the field, the BLS reports that some large firms may prefer to hire database managers who possess a graduate degree. Master's degrees are available in database technologies or database management and business intelligence. The curriculum for these programs includes classes in data mining, database security, database performance tuning, and database backup.

To recap, with a bachelor's degree and 1-5 years of experience, database managers earn about $82,000 a year to create databases for companies that meet their needs.

Hey @psharma, Thanks for the detailed explanation.
@psharma, in step 2 you say that working as a Database developer or data analyst. I wanted to know as how a data analyst can become a database developer? I mean data analyst work always on the front end of the database though they know how the backend works but still. Can you please justify the step 2 for data analyst?

Get a Bachelor's degree in IT related fields (Computer Science, Information Science, Electronics and Communication etc.), then get some course related to Database. Then get an entry-level job as a Database Analyst. At this stage, along with experience it is important to have good certifications. So, get good Certifications and then you can get promoted to a Database Engineer.

Hope this helps :)
