Faculty :

For all active Capital IQ users- a caution and a warning on your use of the service outside of Babson.

Our license VERY clearly states that use is for "academic usage only".  This means any use you make of CIQ in internships, jobs or other programs with an employer is NOT ALLOWED,

Capital IQ can detect the IP from where you connect and if they determine that it is a business- especially a financial business- they will lock your ID and notify us of a possible transgression.

You do not want to be in this situation which has resulted in Babson students losing their access for the semester.  How can you avoid it?

  • Do not use your Capital IQ access for any outside business research
  • Do not connect to Babson and CapIQ using an outside firm's network- even if you are doing Babson coursework
  • Use your home network or a network outside of your employer if you need to get access
  • Do not share your login with any individual
