Questions about business basics?

Business research and analysis can be difficult if you are new to certain areas. For example, if you work primarily in marketing but need to deal with a finance related issue you could spend an enormous amount of time just identifying relevant concepts and what they mean. Here are my favorite sites for 'ramping up' quickly and easily when I am new to an area or concept.

Portable MBA

Great E-book that can fill in the gaps or refresh your knowledge regarding most business concepts. Excellent chapter on business analysis and valuation of companies as well as good information regarding all functional areas (marketing, strategy, accounting, financce, cis etc.)

 

Introduction

This guide will help you manage the research and information needs of a graduate level class in health care finance and management. It contains several parts.


There are two tabs, Case Writing 101 and Case Writing Tips, that will aid you in  the process of writing a case. The Researching Companies and Researching Industries tabs will help you navigate the CSULA databases available for business research. Each tab has step by step instructions on how to use the relevant portions of them. The Health-care Management tab has useful tips and information specifically to the business side of health care including e-books in finance and management in a health care industry context. The tab, Working with Citations, gives basic information about APA format as well as Refworks, a tool for creating in-text and bibliographic references. Finally, the Financial Analysis, Ratios, SEC Filings and Strategy & Analysis tabs provide resources for many common business analytical and decision making tools.

 As always, if you have questions or need help feel free to email me or see me during office hours.

Links to Business Literature Databases

Links to library databases for searching the literature (scholarly, popular and trade/industry) on business topics:

  • ABI/Inform Global
    Great source of peer reviewed/scholarly articles related to business and academic business topics.
  • Business Source Premier
    Like ABI/Inform, a core business database for literature reviews and finding scholarly articles.
  • LexisNexis Academic
    Authoritative source for searching news, trends and facts.
  • Factiva
    Similar to LexisNexis. Not a source of academic or scholarly articles but more authoritative than simply googling a topic to find news in order to verify a fact or trend.
  • RefWorks
    Refworks can be a time and aggravation saver. Use it to create reference pages and in text citations. If you are ever asked for a group code it is rwcsulosangeles.
