FULL-TIME | WINNIPEG LOCATIONS BUSNF-DP Business Administration-Accounting

Computer/Laptop Requirements

Beginning Fall 2022, the Business Administration program will require students to bring a laptop.

Business Administration requires a Microsoft Windows 10 or Windows 11 device. 

MacOS is not compatible with business software used in this program; please see footnote at the bottom of this page.*

Devices must be ready to use on the first day of classes (or orientation) and students should be familiar with the basic operation of their machine. Electronic resources, software and applications will be introduced in the first few days of the term and will be in use during classes almost immediately.

Students do not have to buy from a specific vendor or manufacturer; they are free to find the best device that meets or exceeds the minimum specifications for their program.

Minimum hardware requirements:


Minimum Requirement


Intel® Core™ i5 Processor or AMD equivalent

RAM (memory)



Integrated or external


USB, with integrated microphone


IEEE 802.11ac / n


One USB 2+, HDMI

Additional Considerations:
  • Students are responsible for their own device maintenance and repairs (operating system and hardware)
  • RRC Polytech will provide on-campus network connectivity, and will provide support for software licensed by the College.
  • Microsoft Office 365 is provided at no additional charge for students
  • Laptops with 4-6 hours battery life between charges are ideal for on-campus learning
  • Ensure you have a reliable internet connection while off-campus; RRC Polytech recommends a minimum speed of 10 mbps for download, 3 mbps for upload
*If you intend to use a Mac, you must configure your Mac to run Microsoft Windows. What does this mean for you? This means that your instructors will be teaching in a Microsoft Windows environment, and you will require Microsoft Windows to participate in classroom activities and to complete graded assignments.
