The Finance Department helps maintain an extensive set of research databases for faculty and students. The availability of our databases is made possible through the generous support of the Lerner College, the Unidel Foundation, Donald J. Puglisi, and gifts from many other alumni, faculty, and friends. Thank you all for your support!
For examples of research produced with these databases, please visit our faculty research page.
The Lerner College subscribes to the Wharton Research Database Services network (WRDS), which provides web access to most of our data. If you are a student and would like access to the WRDS-delivered databases, please contact your professor. The Wharton Research Database Services can be accessed at: http://wrds.wharton.upenn.edu/.
