hi ranchers,

I am in a confusion regarding my career track is concerned.
I am three years experienced in IT industry,2 yrs in finance and 1 in healthcare.I job hopped once.First after 14 months and I have been with MNCs only.I and now have reached the one level below Team Lead.I am SCJP/SCWCD/SCBCD/142 certified.I might be offered onsite soon and Team Lead offer a year later.

Now the issue is that as I get higher in the hiearchy I am beginning to do more of a management role like sending 250 mails in week.True I still do a lot of dev/architectural work and also I do some businees work like working out the clients regarding their requirements.But the current work bugs me down .I cant imagine myself in the role of TL/PM etc sending thousand mails a week.I would like to do more business side work along side tech work rather than doind PM work.I love modelling applications based on business fundamentals as I find them most challenging.

Now the issue is how do I build my career from here.

Someone suggested me the role of business analyst suits my mindset best but am not sure. How much technical stuff would I be able to do.In my company many of the business analyst doesnt know much technology. All they know i what technology fits where.

One friend suggested doing MBA(finance) as then I can get the best of both.Some one else suggested going for the highly regarded CFP/CFA cert and then make a move.

Please suggest me what career track I should chose.
