Company Research

This guide identifies sources for basic business and company information, but not specific resources for broad business disciplines such as accounting, marketing or management.

Company profiles provide more detailed information such as company history, sales figures, major competitors, and top executive officers. The following list of directory resources may be helpful when looking for basic company information, in-depth profiles, or a combination of both.
