For decades, we’ve been helping students, faculty, researchers and librarians to do their best work.

Today, more than ever, universities need to attract the best students – and ensure they’re ready for the real world. Thomson Reuters helps on both fronts.

We have a long and successful track record of supporting colleges and universities with state-of-the-art tools that turn financial learners into future financial leaders.

Odds are that somewhere on your campus, someone is working through a problem set for a valuation course, developing an innovative economic model, or building a computational financial simulation that will end up in peer review. And right now, that someone requires the most global, comprehensive, and accurate data available.

Professors use our data, analytics and financial content to fuel and distinguish their own research. Students get hands-on training and mastery of the same tools and products used by their future employers, including Eikon, Datastream, Tick History and more.


Crucial content for university libraries

With the industry’s broadest and deepest content coverage, Thomson Reuters is the leading source of financial information, globally – making us the indispensable choice for universities undertaking research and offering courses in capital markets and banking.

The names you trust – I/B/E/S, SDC Platinum, Datastream, Investext, Worldscope, First Call, Lipper, StreetEvents, StarMine, Point Carbon, ASSET4, Reuters News – are the go-to resources for students, faculty, and researchers alike.

Our high-quality content doesn’t stop there. Eikon is packed with data on everything from M&A deals and time series price data to weather-based market movements to supply chains and more.

Thomson Reuters Eikon

Whether you are a student or faculty member, Thomson Reuters Eikon is an ideal desktop for doing your best work.

Plus, there are no special codes or keystrokes to memorize. Instead, an intelligent search means you simply type the way you talk and get highly relevant results pulled simultaneously from multiple sources. All displayed graphically, so it’s easy to grasp and act on.
