Several financial data providers now offer new ways to access data through specialized interfaces (APIs). In this tutorial, we will explore these new methods. In particular, we will look at the APIs offered by Bloomberg, Eikon and WRDS (which includes Amadeus, Compustat, CRSP, OptionMetrics, etc.). We will primarily use Python but other possibilities such as R and Stata are also available.

In order to attend, you need to have a Goethe card!
