Accounting Subject Guide



Barron's is a weekly news magazine providing financial news, providing in-depth analysis and commentary on stocks, investments and markets. Access to Barron's current content is restricted to students, faculty and staff, and users need to register for a personal account. If you already have an account for the Wall Street Journal, the login will be the same. 

W&L’s subscription was a gift from Tommy McBride and McBride & Associates at Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. Tommy has been a Barron's Top Ranked Advisor since 2009. The goal is to spur financial education, learn from investing’s best minds and foster professional growth in US business schools.
