Laptop Requirements

Please note that RSM and most of the educational publishers are geared for Windows with respect to software and IT support. During the programme you (will) need to install and use software that can only be installed on Windows systems. Therefore we strongly advise you to bring a laptop with an English version of Windows 10 (or 7) installed on it. Furthermore it would be advisable if the laptop is fairly new (<4 years old) and has a battery that can last at least 4 hours.

If you are using a Mac Book you can choose to install Windows on it or you can use our Remote Desktop environment. Installation of Windows on a Mac Book can be done in three ways: BootCamp, VirtualBox or Parallels (please note you will need a valid license key for Windows, MS Office and the program itself.)

Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure the programs are installed and ready to be used in case you choose to run Windows on your Mac.
