Among the items you will want to purchase and familiarize yourself with before your classes begin are: a laptop computer, a quality laser printer, a financial calculator and an electronic organizer. We have also included several books you may want to read before you start your b-school classes. Below are recommendations and reviews from our consultants and previous clients for the items you will need to get the most out of your business school experience.


Apple iPhone 13 Pro

The iPhone 13 with 1TB seems to have become more of a necessity than a luxury for b-school. Among its many features, this latest model has a 6.1″ screen, a triple-camera system, and 5G super fast downloads. It also boasts an A15 bionic chip with a third-generation neural engine and a fast charge with an 18W adapter.

iPhone for Dummies by Edward Baig and Bob LeVitus

If you are already an iPhone expert, then great. But, if your understanding is mostly limited to phone, GPS, and iTunes and you are not up to speed on the latest features, then we strongly encourage you to get up to speed on these features now so you can hit the ground running and get the most out of your first-year classes and recruiting opportunities.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
If you are not an Apple or Google fan, this is your phone. The design ensures you see notifications while keeping your screen private, fits perfectly in your pocket, and it is ideal for hands-free use.
Google Pixel 6 Pro

It may not be the best suited for business school, but it integrates seamlessly with the Google apps so many MBA students use, it runs fast and, of course, we know many of our website visitors love the camera!

Microsoft Surface Duo 2
Open two screens at once and move files back and forth between them. Your study groups will appreciate your phone is especially designed for apps that run on two screens.
Hewlett Packard HP 12CP
The HP 12CP is a fast and powerful calculator designed for educators, businessmen, or anyone who needs a reliable tool to handle mathematical and/or financial calculations. It is, hands down, the financial calculator of choice amongst top business school students. If you aren’t yet familiar with Reverse Polish Notation, take a bit of time to familiarize yourself with it before settling in on campus.
Texas Instruments BA II Plus Professional Financial Calculator
The BA II Plus Professional calculator features all the great features of its predecessor while packing in even more time-saving functions to make short work of complex equations. It’s an ideal choice for entry level and advanced finance, accounting, economics, investment, statistics, and other business classes. It’s also a great choice to bring to the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam.
