Course / training

In research projects, it is often necessary to use data from different sources. In this workshop, we discuss how you can combine different data sets into a single data set that you can use for analysis. We show you how to do this using Excel, and discuss common issues using hands-on examples using databases such as Compustat Global & Datastream.

Target group
Advanced bachelor and master students, in particular those starting work on their thesis.
No prior knowledge is required, but some experience with Excel and working with databases is recommended.


Free for VU University students, faculty and staff, for others see the costs of services.
