Company histories can be great sources of background information for business students. However, locating quality company histories can be frustrating since a lot of information is not available online . The good news is that SMU students have access to a solution that's just a click away: the International Directory of Company Histories (IDCH). Simply log-in with your SMU username/password, and once you are in, find the yellow search box on the left-hand side of the screen. Enter the name of your company and hit ‘Go.’ If more than one result is returned for your company, make sure you click the most recent one (years are listed).
