Laptop on desk

Business school graduates are expected to be proficient in the use of information technology. To support this goal, all students enrolled in the Grossman School of Business at the University of Vermont are required to own a portable computer. GSB Faculty strongly prefer students use Windows rather than Mac laptops because of application compatibility.

For minimum and recommended hardware specs, see the Student Computing Resources page.
