Finding SWOT Analyses in Library Databases

We have two primary databases that provide access to SWOT Analyses. Business Insights: Essentials and Business Source Elite. Keep in mind that there will not be a SWOT Analysis available for every single company, so if you have an assignment where you need to conduct a SWOT Analysis you may want to select a company for which one is available.

The other databases found in this section provide information that can be used to create your own SWOT Analsysis. Information that may be found includes a list of top competitors, industry analyses, and company financials and reports.
