Ivy College of Business
- Note that some software used for Ivy College of Business courses is only available on Windows/PC computers (i.e. Microsoft Access). This should be taken into consideration when choosing a suitable computer to purchase for your major. Accounting majors are encouraged to use a Windows computer. If you find your laptop can’t handle a particular Business application, there are virtual computing options available.
- Typical use scenarios:
- Minimum/Economical: Web browsing, Microsoft Office-type applications, connecting to a remote computer. This is the minimum recommendation for all students in the Ivy College of Business.
- Recommended: Running applications for software programming, video editing, modeling, etc. A computer with these higher end options is appropriate for someone with a major or courses which involve more computation like Management Information Systems (MIS) or Marketing. Please verify with your department for any specific requirements to run specialized software.
