Global Programs

Guide for Global Programs course projects

Description: Global Programs Research

This research guide provides access to resources useful for global programs courses (e.g., BAEX, MNGT). It provides instructions on how to use the databases available from the Business Library for your research. Use the tabs on the left to find country overviews, articles, company information, statistical data, market research and economic information. You may also find the International BusinessCompanies and Industries & Markets Research Guides to be useful. For additional information, Ask a Business Librarian.

Diving into the Databases for Global Programs Resources

1. Download the Word document below which contains all the requirements to complete your journey through the databases described in this research guide.

2. For each database you will find the required information.

3. Take a screenshot of your result.

4. You will also create citations in the APA format for those results and place them in an alphabetized resources list.

You may be asked to turn in the Word document with the screenshots replaced by your results and the alphabetized resources list for your results at the end. Even if this is not a course requirement, going through this exercise will help you learn the strengths of each resource.
