Gale Introduces Gale Business Insights: Global

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, and a publisher of research and reference resources for libraries, schools, and businesses, released Gale Business Insights: Global, a new international online business resource designed to empower students to progress quickly from basic research to higher levels of understanding. The resource is designed for undergraduate and graduate business school students, as well as academic faculty, librarians, and professional researchers.

“We live and work within a growing global economy and business schools today are under a new and increased pressure to develop and integrate global business information into the curriculum,” said David Forman, vice president and publisher, Gale. “Gale Business Insights: Global helps schools do this by teaching students how to research international business topics and compare global economies, companies, and industries by providing the data they need with the resources to analyze it. It also helps educators better teach international business topics by enabling them to organize our content around countries, data sets, and topics—taking the resource from the research environment to the learning environment.”

The most common assignments in business courses involve reading and analyzing case studies and completing news-related assignments—activities that go beyond the textbook and require students to access different types of information from disparate sources. However, a majority of students and professors say it is not easy to find sources that are credible, relevant, and current.

Gale Business Insights: Global is designed to relieve these pain points and give MBA and business students an edge in the international marketplace. Gale Business Insights: Global integrates case studies, analytical tools, and in-depth statistical data with narrative content in a way that will help students succeed with their coursework and in the global business world. Researchers have the ability to download and analyze global data, industry and company profiles, and market share information for a complete interactive experience that fosters understanding.
