Career Resources for MBA Students

Provides an overview of library resources that you can use for research and interview preparation.

Company Research

It is important to learn more about the companies that you are interested in or interviewing with. This information is found on both public sites and in library databases. 

1. Company websites: Look for an "About Us" section or "Investor Information." Public companies will often include links to their annual reports that they distribute to shareholders. Also look for a "News" section to see what they are highlighting. 

2. Annual Reports: All public companies are required to file detailed financial reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These are filed annually (10-K) and quarterly (10-Q). 

3. Company Profiles: Several databases offer comprehensive company profiles that provide overviews of the company, complete with SWOT analysis.

4. News Searches: Search databases to stay up-to-date on its actions and breaking news. 

Company Profiles

Many business databases provide detailed company profiles that include information on the company's finances, executives, history, competitors, SWOT analysis, and more.
