Computing and Technology

Enhancing the educational experience with technology is a top priority within the business school. The WSU Computing & Information Technology department (C&IT) provides IT services and resources for the Wayne State community. This includes e-mail and wireless network help, along with discounts on software, mobile phones and more.

Finance and data analytics lab

The finance and data analytics lab is located on the Ilitch School's first floor room 133. It is only available to students who are taking classes that require access to the Bloomberg Terminals or Mac Minis.

This lab holds 12 Bloomberg Terminals, 12 high-end Windows computers and 12 Mac Minis.

Accounting computer lab

The accounting computer lab is located on the third floor in room 327. When classes are not in session, it is available to all Ilitch School business students as an open computer lab.

This lab holds 60 virtual workstations and is primarily used to hold BA 1500 classes.


Many of our courses make extensive use of high-end, state-of-the-art software aimed at maximizing students' educational experiences. 

Some examples include the data-mining software package SPSS and the enterprise resource planning solution Sage 100 ERP. Students can also access our Oracle database with any Web connection, which allows them to work with the number one relational database in the world.

We offer these resources so students experience real-world tech environments and learn by doing.
