BUAD 311: Principles of Marketing

Mission Statements

A company's mission statement articulates the company's purpose, objectives, consumers, and products offered. The best place to begin researching company mission statements is the company itself; using your preferred search engine, search for the company. While mission statements are often found within a "Company Information" or "About Us" section, they can also be found within a publicly traded company's Media and/or Investor Relations page or their 10K (annual report).

SWOT Analysis

SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats, and a SWOT Analysis helps analysts understand a company's position in the market. The following databases are considered "best bets" for finding credible SWOT analyses.

Additional Information Resources

Use these resources to conduct exploratory research about your company and/or to verify information you received through other publications.
