Just SQL is fine.. Programming language or scripting is a bonus. Get the basics of db structure.

Probably a bit of experience in most used db which is SQL Server & Oracle.
I think for fresh grad knowing SQL is enough though .

But may i know why do you want to be db admin?

Now towards big data. Try to familiarize the NoSQL db such as MangoDB, along with structured SQL as well

After learning all the programming language like C,Java,HTML and SQL , I realize that i am more into database area cause I like to analysis things compare to create software or develop a website.
Data analyst is also a job in my list.

Data analyst is the start of big data thing ... i think :/

do you know what a database admin does?
database admin basically is someone who administrate the database. he/she doesnt program, design nor do anything.
administrate means = give permission to users, set user access, a lot of paperwork, do backup, etc.

if you are so keen on database, u might want to look into database developer, oracle / mysql / mssql / foxpro / duhdatabase developer / programmer
