All students accepted into the MBA program must have a laptop/notebook available to them to bring to class for the duration of the program. Although the laptop is not required in every class, there are several, such as statistics and marketing among others, for which the computer is mandatory. In some classes, you will be required to add specific software to the laptop. You must have administrative rights on your laptop to install this software and make system-level changes. If you use a laptop at work and are required to use your company’s IT department to make such changes, this laptop does not satisfy the MBA requirements.
In purchasing a laptop, you’ll want to consider these issues:
Additionally, laptop screen size and weight are important considerations, but they are of secondary importance for the MBA program. Please note that the "mini notebooks" will not qualify as a recommended laptop. In our experience we have not been able to run statistical and accounting software’s on these computers.
Our on-campus computer store, Cougar Byte sells hardware and is the place to buy licensed software for your use as a student.
