EP&E 311/GLBL205 - Business Ethics in a Global Economy: Home

Research Strategy

This guide is designed to help you research companies for your assignments in EP&E311/GLBL205. By using a combination of resources, you can get insight into strategic and environmental issues that are relevant to your company of interest.

  • Not sure where to start? Think about who would have an interest in the information you are looking for. Other companies? Investors? Governments? Suppliers? Understanding who might benefit from information can help you figure out where to look.

  • The best research draws from and compares multiple sources. This doesn't mean you have to find every source of information, but compare a few! 

  • Be smart! Remember, even (especially!) the most seemingly unbiased reports and associations can have motives. Numbers are numbers, but always be mindful of agendas, presentation, and whether or not information is reliably sourced.

  • Looking for more resources? The Business & Management Research Guide includes links to all of our resources related to business. Be sure to check here too!
