MGT 410 - Competitor: Industry Information

Please Note

Resources were covered in the live class sessions on October 26 & 28 are noted in bold text on this page. 

Databases featuring industry research reports

Commercially prepared industry reports are a great way to get a quick briefing on an industry. Try to use multiple reports to eliminate vendor slant or possible misinformation. These documents also provide a useful model for how to approach your own industry research.

Financial & Industry Ratios

Industry Classifications

Using standardized codes can help you search for industries more effectively.  Many of our databases are searchable by NAICS or SIC codes.  Others will use their own proprietary industry classification system. Keep in mind that a company can be (and likely is, depending on the size) active in more than one industry so this may affect your searches.
