Company Data

This interactive tutorial teaches the basics of searching for company information. The guide is specifically designed for Indiana State University freshman and sophomores, but is appropriate for any adult learner who is unfamiliar with the material. Fundamental concepts of conducting company research are linked to illustrated, step-by-step guides demonstrating how to search a variety of online business resources. Embedded quizzes offer the user the opportunity for gauging their mastery of the material. This tutorial is used by students in freshman English and business classes, distance learners, and university career center clients doing research prior to interviews. Note: Access to many of the databases is restricted to the ISU community.

This would certainly be useful, but woul dneed to be adjusted for your specific location. It gives the students the necessary steps in finding compnay information. In the past, I have assumed they could find company financial information, only to find I was incorrect. This is a good guide.
