IBISWorld database on trial
You don’t have to be a business major to appreciate the latest trial database available in the library. Whether you’re doing business research for a class, or deciding which industry will most likely offer you the best job possibilities when you graduate, we highly recommend that you consult a database called IBISWorld. As you consider which direction your strengths will carry you, knowledge about how your industry of interest rates against other industries will prove most valuable. You’ll discover whether it’s an industry still exploring its growth potential, or whether it’s an industry on the decline.
IBISWorld is one of the strongest databases on the market which cover industry information. Each industry report runs between 40-60 pages and covers more than 700 industries. Its strength lies in the fact that analysts draw their information from both public and private sources, based on 300 economic, demographic and consumer variables.
Much of the information is based on official data sources, like the U.S. Census Bureau, and is updated every 4 months, ensuring you have access to the latest information on which to base your decisions. The Industry Research Reports provide real life information used in Corporate America on hard to find industries that no one else covers.
