      about us and our ideas

  • motivation

    Our team is excited about research and technology. Event Study Metrics was built because we got tired of rewriting routines for empirical studies over and over again. What started as a few lines of code to standardize event dates grew bigger and bigger. Over time, we realized that more than 20,000 lines of code do pretty much everything you need to run all sorts of event studies. At this point we thought that we’d like to share it with you, so you don’t have to do the coding and can concentrate on research.
