Course Related Excel Add-Ins:

Certain core classes at Fuqua require the use of Microsoft Excel add-ins. Not all add-ins are compatible with Microsoft Excel on the Mac.

The following are the only add-ins that are compatible with both Microsoft Excel on Mac and Windows:

  • Solver
  • SensIt
  • RegressIt

The following add-ins and software programs must be used within a Windows operating system utilizing Microsoft Office 2019 Professional 64-bit. Many of the add-ins will not work properly if used with Office 365:

  • Crystal Ball
  • FSBstats
  • Treeplan
  • People Express Simulator
  • Statgraphics Centurion

If you have a Mac computer, you are required to be able to run all of the above add-ins and software programs in the courses where they are used. This can be done through the installation of a virtual machine, such as VMWare Fusion, or by utilizing a virtual machine through Duke OIT's Virtual Computing Manager.
