Special Note to Apple and MacBook Users: The W. P. Carey School of Business works with our software vendors to insure the success of our students but we cannot influence their decisions about the development of their Operating Systems. Consequently, not all course software will work on the Apple or MacBook platform, notably Microsoft Project and add-ons for Microsoft Excel. In order to use these specific course applications on an Apple or MacBook, you must either:
- Utilize Citrix, a remote desktop solution via the school's servers
- Have a virtual PC on your system that is set up with Microsoft Excel for Windows
- Have access to a Windows system to run these specific applications
The W. P. Carey School of Business supports the Microsoft Windows operating system and our Technical Assistance Center can provide only limited support for specific Apple and MacBook issues.
