For remote access, you also need to Request a Capital IQ account (Please use Chrome or Firefox when requesting an account. Not available to MBA students during the internship period)

Thomson ONE

Connect to Thomson ONE

Please note: Does not work in Firefox, Chrome, or some versions of IE. It should work with IE version 10 and 11. Windows 10 does not come with IE as a browser. You can find instructions for installing it here.

Thomson ONE uses pop-ups. Set IE to accept pop-ups from Thomson One before entering the database to avoid having to re-do steps.
