About this Database
WRDS is a web-based business data research service from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Provides access to financial, accounting, banking, economics, marketing, and public policy databases through a uniform, web-based interface. Strengths include deep archives of historical data, a common web interface for access to all WRDS databases, and a variety of output file formats.
Harvard University faculty, students (including MBA students) and researchers can request a WRDS account.
WRDS accounts are not provided during the summer to MBA students. Authorized Harvard University students can discuss in-person access for academic use during the summer months. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
