CBA Laptop Information
Accounting & Information System Majors ONLY
As an Accounting or Information System major, you will be required to have a laptop for the duration of your undergraduate program.

Microsoft Windows 7 or higher
Microsoft Office Professional 2010 or higher (Students will use Microsoft Access in their classes.)
All other College of Business Administration (CBA) Majors
As a student in the CBA it is highly recommended that you have your own laptop throughout the duration of your undergraduate program.
Rider has partnered with Dell and Apple to provide CBA students with an affordable way to purchase a top-quality laptop. This tool will truly aid students as they prepare to be competitive workers with a future employer, where using a laptop is not optional but rather a necessity. Keep in mind that if you choose to purchase an Apple laptop you will have to run both the Mac and Windows Platforms.
Our online store is now open if you choose to purchase your laptop through one of Rider’s partnerships. To review the laptop required specifications, determine pricing and to order a laptop, please follow the link above.
