  • UC Berkeley Global Financial Data Project

    This summer, Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley launched a new research program called the Global Financial Data Project. The program is ongoing with a team of over 20 Berkeley and other university students, and we are accepting applications to join for Fall 2016. The program is 100% online, and may be performed from the U.S. or internationally. The program is designed to provide college students with experience performing real business research geared towards the practice of statistics, consulting, finance, accounting, and economics. Attached is a flyer of the project.
    The project studies private companies around the world so as to infer their financial health. If your students are international students, we leverage their local country knowledge and language to perform the research. They will have access to unique data and resources to perform the research. In the program, we will first study the U.S., and then move onto other countries.
    I sincerely hope that you can help us inform your undergraduate students of our project through emails. Please let me know the right contact of your department.
    The application deadline is Oct 7. Students may apply here:
    More information about the program can be found here:
    Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions regarding the program. Or you can contact Executive Director Jose M. Plehn-Dujowich at jplehn@haas.berkeley.edu. I look forward to hearing from you.
