Introduction

Do you ever think about working in your favorite clothing store or getting an employee discount on the car of your dreams because you work for the car manufacturer?  Maybe you want to start your own business and want to learn more about how big corporations like Disney, WalMart, or General Motors got started.

                                                       

In this webquest, you are going to learn about some of the major corporations in the world.  It will be an exciting journey for you to explore.  The owners of these corporations are people just like you and me.  We are called stockholders.  We invest our money in businesses to help them grow, sell more products, or provide more services.  At the end of this webquest, you will make a recommendation about the company that you researched.  Based on your research you will recommend whether or not your company is a good investment.

I hope you enjoy learning about the corporate world!
