When a specific industry focus is needed for project-based classes, capstones, Entrepreneurship programs, investment clubs, business model canvases/ business plans, IBISWorld gives a broad overview of the targeted industry, its product and market segmentation, cost structure benchmarks, competitive dynamics, supply chain map, the regulatory environment, macroeconomic drivers, and much more.
The industry specific content is a handy resource for Career Services; with its straightforward interface, students and advisors can easily access industries of interest for all disciplines as they plan for the future and prepare for job and internship opportunities.
