Developed by Wharton Research Data Services (WRDS), this Program is designed for international scholars who are interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of empirical research practices and insight into the latest innovations in academic research.
Our diverse and dynamic group of Faculty and Ph.D.-level scholars, Wharton faculty, WRDS Research Directors, and guest speakers exchanged ideas and explored efficient and accurate ways of handling big data.
