Dog Studies


Compu StatStudents in Corporate Finance (SV356) are working with the new Research Insight database in the Logan library. The database (also known as CompuStat) contains fundamental, statistical, and market data for U.S. and Canadian corporations and has been available for Rose-Hulman students and faculty members since last fall tem. It enables our students to apply theoretical economic finance models to real-life case studies. In fact, the students in the pictures are collecting useful and reliable firm-level data for their valuation projects on actual companies. In the fall term, students in Managerial Economics (SV351) also used this valuable resource in their class projects. Also, in the coming fall term, students enrolled in Econometrics course (SV450) including several Economics majors will use the database for the empirical work (hypothesis testing) on various economic topics. In addition, faculty members may use the database to facilitate academic research.
