Business Research

Business Information Sources

Business databases are an invaluable source of market research information. Many of our business databases are created by for-profit companies to sell directly to businesses for use in their operations. Your tuition supports our subscriptions to these databases. Your experience with and skill in using these databases can help you both obtain a job, and succeed in it.

These resources are primarily for United States industries and companies. If you need information about international industries and/or markets, use these guides: 

International Marketing

International Entrepreneurship

This guide is a copy of much of the Market Research guide, but not everyone doing business research is strictly speaking doing  "market research." If you do not find what you're looking for here, try the Market Research guide.
