Q.
HBS Alumni eBaker tips: Target list of companies

How can alumni create a list of companies by industry, location, and/or size?


A.

D&B Global Express is a great tool to create a list of companies (potential employers, suppliers, customers, competitors, etc.) - available to all alumni via eBaker

Create a list:

1. Click “Companies – Build a List.”

2. Select your geography; it can be broad (regions, countries, states) or narrow (cities or counties).

3. If desired, select company ownership: public, private, non-profit, state-owned, etc.

4. Choose industry or industries of interest from “Industry Classification” or use keywords in the “Business Description” field.

5. If desired, specify size parameters, e.g. sales ($millions) or employees.  You can also choose to see the top X number of companies based on size.

6. Click “Run Search” to compile your results.

7. Click “View Results” to see the list of companies you built (note: results must be fewer than 1,000 to view).

8. To export results to Excel, click “Build Custom Report.”  Select fields and click “Add” to include them in the custom table. Click the Excel icon near the top right corner to download your list.
