Questions on being a Data Analyst and how to become one with a business degree

Hello!

I am about to graduate with a specialized business degree in print (bachelor of tech). My program had some classes in tech and science and I have done an internship that was quite similar to that of a business analyst. I've been thinking of trying to pursue a career as a Data analyst in the future in the next couple of years. I know there is a difference between Business Analyst and Data Analyst, I just want to get more information about working as a Data Analyst. Questions I have are:

1. As a Data analyst, do you have to do a lot of outside studying to do to keep up with the industry like in I.T?

2. How is the work/life balance in this field? Would it give me time to work on side projects or a side business?

3. What is the biggest downside about this field?

4. What do you like most about this field?

5. Is it easy to transition from Business analyst to Data analyst?

6. With my credentials, how should I go at getting into a data analyst position? Should I do a master's (Ryerson) or certification (Sheridan)?

Thank you.
