Laptop Specifications

Most business courses use technology in and out of the classroom. Any student who is serious about a career in business needs to use the technology tools used in business today.

Though the Fox School does not have a formal computer requirement, we strongly recommend that students purchase laptops while at Fox. Students with laptops can use wired and wireless connections in several classrooms and labs. See the Temple University Computer Services Technical Support site for more supported platform details.
