BADM 3001 SOFTWARE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FALL 2012
If you are enrolled in BADM 3001 for the fall 2012 semester, you should know that a laptop computer is a requirement for most all upper (3000 & 4000) business classes. Your computer must have the ability to run Windows 7 (64 bit) and Office Professional 2010.
All University of Connecticut students are now eligible to receive Microsoft software
Microsoft Windows 7 and Office Professional 2010 are required for all School of Business students at the Storrs campus.
Please visit the HuskyTech to learn how to download and install both products.
EFFECTIVE FALL 2010
Beginning with the fall 2010 semester, incoming undergraduate Business students taking BADM 3001 and/or above classes as well as all new full-time MBA students at the Storrs campus will no longer be required to lease a laptop computer provided by the school. This change follows an extensive review of the program as well as consultation with student leaders, faculty and industry partners.
The mandate to have an adequate laptop for class, however, will remain in effect. New students entering the School of Business in the fall semester of 2010 will be responsible for obtaining and supporting their own laptop.
LAPTOP vs CAR
Before leaving your laptop in your car, please be aware of two problems.
- Your laptop does not like hot or cold temperatures...it is possible the hard drive or other component may actually cook or freeze depending on the temperature.
- If your laptop is stolen from your car, your insurance claim may be denied unless you can prove that the laptop was "fully secured in a locked compartment (trunk) and the theft resulted from forcible entry."
School of Business students are reminded that it is your responsibility to secure your laptop at all times. This means lock your doors; if you must leave your laptop in your car for a short time, the laptop should be secured in a locked compartment.
