Research Institute for Business (RIB) held two sessions of Introductory WRDS Training Workshop on 1 and 2 Mar 2018. Students and staff members from different disciplines have participated in the workshops.
Our Research Assistant, Ms Sara Lam, has introduced various functions available on the WRDS platform to the participants and demonstrated how to retrieve relevant data from the WRDS database by submitting queries. Afterwards, participants were provided with opportunity to further enhance their learning by completing several exercises with the assistance from our staff.
At the end of the workshop, participants took the initiative to ask questions about the data retrieved by queries with different options to gain a better understanding of how to find the right data. Participants were engaged deeply throughout the workshop and gave positive feedback on the hands-on experience that was found to be useful for their learning.
