Computer Requirements

Admitted Students

Indiana University is a world leader in information technology, and computing will be vital to your academic success here. We provide a wealth of resources and opportunities in technology through a secure wired and wireless network. Your key to those resources is your network ID.

Once we have confirmation of your acceptance of our offer of admission, you will receive instructions on how to generate your computer accounts and what specific accounts to request. Students coming from the undergraduate ranks of Indiana University will be asked to create additional accounts. (The graduate students at the Kelley School of Business use a different e-mail system than the general student population.) Note: Once your Indiana University accounts have been created, all further communication between you and the department will be conducted using your IU exchange account.

In addition, all graduate business students are required to purchase a laptop computer. See the Kelley School’s notebook computer requirements for complete information. You’ll use the laptop to download assignments, complete the assignment with your team, and send answers to your professors without ever using a pencil.
