How It Works

All faculty, students, staff, and authorized users on your network can access the Business & Economics Portfolio through authorized IP addresses – no passwords necessary. Reports are formatted as PDF files. Economic indicators are in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and charts.

Economic data is provided for analysis purposes only, not for redistribution, publishing, data-basing, or public posting without express written permission. Librarians may print individual articles for delivery under their interlibrary loan procedures. No electronic forwarding of material is permitted. We provide usage reports when requested. We consider each contiguous campus in a city area as one site. Every site requires a separate membership, but there is no size limit on the network of users at each site. In some instances, satellite campuses can be included in a single contiguous campus membership.

Plus 50% educator discount off the already discounted member rate on conferences, seminars, and workshops – over 100 meetings annually – for you and your colleagues. You also receive special discounts on publication purchases and other services. We offer annual site licenses for the Business & Economics Portfolio exclusively to educational institutions and libraries.

The Conference Board is a global, independent business membership and research association working in the public interest. Our mission is unique: to provide the world’s leading organizations with the practical knowledge they need to improve their performance and better serve society. The Conference Board is a non-advocacy, not-for-profit entity holding 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status in the USA.
