Desktop Replacement Program

We are working closely with ITD in preparation for the Desktop Replacement Program. Computers due for replacement will be replaced by an Intel NUC. The new computers will come preloaded with Windows 7 and MTSU standard software packages. We will be contacting faculty members to schedule the replacement during the fall semester. Our plan is to use this opportunity to start migrating our systems to the FSA domain.


FSA Domain Migration

Beginning this fall, each computer in the College of Business will be migrated from our current Bizlab domain to the campus-standard FSA domain. Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2013 will also be installed on each computer in preparation for the Microsoft Lync telephone migration. This project will require an average of four hours per computer, depending on the amount of data needing to be transferred. We will contact each faculty member with additional information.

New Survey Software

Dr. David J. Urban is proud to announce the adoption of a new survey software package called Qualtrics. This powerful survey tool is useful in conducting online questionnaires to obtain statistical data. To request a survey, visit our website.


New Digital Signage

This summer, we unveiled a new campus-standard digital signage design on our BizTV's that creates an eye-catching display in each lobby of the Business and Aerospace Building. To request information on these digital displays, visit our BizTV webpage.

Faculty Technology Survey

Getting feedback from our College of Business faculty members is critical in helping us improve the impact of technology in teaching and research. As part of this effort, we will be conducting a technology survey with all of our faculty members. The more you tell us, the better we can act on your feedback. We appreciate your support and collaboration.
