The following are the computer requirements and suggestions for students entering the MSRA-MF degree program. Students must have all required hardware and software prior to the start of classes.




  • Computer with Windows 10 build 1809 or later. (Windows 10 Pro is recommended for remote desktop connections.)
    • This can include a Windows PC or a Mac running Windows in BootCamp (virtualization via VMWare, Parallels, etc. is acceptable.)
    • Suggested specifications:
      • Intel i5 or above or AMD Ryzen 1600 or above processor.
      • Minimum 8GB RAM (16GB recommended).
      • 512GB or larger SSD.
  • High-speed internet connection.
    • Wi-fi is acceptable under most circumstances (e.g. live lectures, Canvas content.) However, it will be necessary to occasionally access course materials using a faster, wired connection (e.g. uploading/downloading multimedia files for projects, etc.)
