I recently joined Capital IQ as an intern. This blog-post gives a brief overview of Capital IQ. In my subsequent posts, I will be explaining how I got into CIQ and my experiences there.

Before I tell my story, I should introduce Capital IQ to all my readers who don’t know it yet. To know about Capital IQ, you should know "The McGraw Hill Companies Inc."

The McGraw Hill Companies Inc. traces back to 1888. Its primary areas of business are education, publishing, broadcasting and financial and business services. In India it is popular in the educational sector as Tata McGraw Hill. I am sure most of us have grown up studying the text-books published by TMH. Know more about the McGraw Hill companies at
