Our Fast Answers on market research, industry analysis, and company information may be useful to you.  You may also wish to refer to our research guides.

MBA students may use Baker's licensed databases for their own analysis in support of their academic work (including FIELD, independent projects and summer internships), but must follow these guidelines:

  • In your written communication with colleagues, you may excerpt only insignificant portions of reports, articles, and other documents for distribution to company employees or anyone else (i.e., do not email data, entire documents, or reports to others at the company).

  • Never allow others direct access to Baker Library resources (i.e., do not share your password with anyone).

  • Always attribute accurately and completely all data and excerpts you include in your reports. For recommended guidelines, see the HBS Citation Guide.

  • Capital IQ and WRDS do not allow usage with outside organizations, and cut off MBA access to the database in the summer.
