Start your research of a company by finding general information, such as address, ticker symbol, main business activities, size, number of employees, and major products.
If you are researching a public company, you can use SEC filings to explore the company's financial condition, future plans, executive compensation, corporate structure, and research & development expenditures.
News articles may provide in-depth information about company executives, problems within the company, and future plans.
This information is a starting point for your research. It will give you a jump-start to academic resources in both online and print formats. Ask a reference librarian for additional suggestions.
