Biotech, social media, robotics, and more: Plunkett's Industry Almanacs

Published January 25, 2016 by Mark Bodnar

Have you ever been deep into research on an industry and found yourself wishing that someone -- anyone! -- would have already pulled together all the information on key trends and major statistics for that industry?

And maybe you then started daydreaming about how great it would be if you could get all that information in a single online source... and about how this hypothetical gem of a source might even include profiles of the top companies in the industry, perhaps around 300-500 companies per industry...?

Online marketing and web analytics (BUS 441)

Published January 19, 2016 by Mark Bodnar

I hear that our BUS 441 students are embarking on a project that will have them designing marketing campaigns using WordPress websites, FaceBook ads, and Google AdWords, all while gathering data and adjusting their campaigns.

I'm sure the instructor will be providing detailed readings and guidance, but I thought I'd highlight a few of the other resources that might prove useful for such activities.

If nothing else, this list might be helpful for other SFU researchers interested in similar topics.

For your To-Do list: Renew or return last semester's books before Jan. 11th

Published January 7, 2016 by Mark Bodnar

We've hit that magical time of year when semester-loan items borrowed last year from the SFU Library need to be returned or renewed!

If you borrowed or renewed a semester-loan item between July 31, 2015 and November 30, 2015, it is due next Monday (January 11, 2016). Fines and suspensions can be avoided by returning and/or renewing books before that date.

Does your research require access to data on FDI (foreign direct investment) inflows, outflows, positions, and stock?  Maybe also to FDI regulations, policies, and major players?  Then start with our (just-updated) BUS 431 course guide
