“The primary motivation for obtaining WRDS was to increase the efficiencies of the researchers within the Center. We no longer have to be concerned about changing all of our individual access programs because
WRDS maintains and updates the databases and interface.”
– Paul Chaney, Professor, Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University
