Our online graduate management programs are designed, developed, and delivered using a robust and dynamic learning environment, which can be accessed via a web browser or through installing our learning environment platform on your computer.
All Faculty of Business graduate students are required to install the learning environment platform on at least one computer. This allows AU to provide the high level of interactivity for which our school is known while also allowing students to work on or offline, and maintain a lasting archive of all course work and discussions.
To run our learning environment platform, you will require one of the following operating systems:
PC MAC Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10 OSX 10.8 or higher 2 GB free hard drive space 2 GB free hard drive space 2 GB RAM 2 GB RAM Administrative access Administrative access
