Stern requires all incoming MBA students to own a laptop computer. The laptop requirement ensures that you will have access to the resources needed to successfully complete Stern's program of study. You are also expected to have Internet access from your home throughout the program.
If you will be purchasing a laptop for your time at Stern, the NYU Computer Store will offer an NYU Stern laptop in partnership with Dell and Apple. The 2011-2012 academic year NYU Stern laptop models will be announced and available for purchase in April. If you already own a laptop computer, or choose to select another model, please be sure that it meets our recommended hardware & software configurations. Note the different levels of IT support outlined below.
Note: Summer Start students should order their laptops in early June to ensure delivery by early July.
The Stern IT Help Desk offers year-round laptop support to students and can help you with setting up your Stern network access. The Help Desk may be reached by phone at 212-998-0180 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and is located at the Kaufman Management Center in UC-120. For more information and walk-in hours, visit the Help Desk website.
