Welcome to the BU5190 Business Strategy and Policy LibGuide! Familiarize yourself with the tabs located above on "books," "articles," "leadership," and more.
Books: To get a list of good management materials, check out the "books" link. Even better, search OWLCat, Old Westbury Library's catalog for books. Try using search terms such as "leadership" and "management". Other terms such as "human resources" can be useful. If you have a specific search topic for an assignment such as "operations management", that can be the start of a good search as well.
Business News and Articles: Get the latest business news by searching the Old Westbury Library's databases and the internet. With the internet you always have to be careful. Web sites such as Bloomberg, CNN Money, MarketWatch, Yahoo! Finance are good places to start on the internet.
Professional Association Web Sites: Learn more about management by taking a look at some professional associations for managers. Often these sites are a treasure trove of information and data. Click on "Web Sites & Associations" to learn more. Plus, don't miss the section on prepping for the GMAT test to get into MBA programs.
Research a CEO: Find a CEO that interests you. It could be Jack Welch, Warren Buffett, or Meg Whitman. Then read about how their managerial style influenced a company.
Think Outside the Box: Management relates to psychology, sociology, as well as other business areas. It's a rather inter-disciplinary subject that cuts across a wide range of subjects. Where do you search outside of business databases? Take a look at PsycINFO and Sociological Abstracts.
Finally, we saved some of the best for last. This guide has some good tips on preparing business and industry research.
