WRDS provides access to many sources of information on public company financial statements, equity and market performance, corporate governance issues, and select direct marketing data.
Usage of WRDS is strictly limited to Auburn faculty, visiting faculty, Ph.D students, staff, research assistants, and classes. Undergraduates and Master's students may only be granted access by a faculty member for a class.
To access WRDS, go to http://wrds.wharton.upenn.edu. Users must fill out a form to create their own login/password. They will then receive a confirmation email, which may take a day or more to receive.
