To take advantage of these deals, follow the instructions for the individual company. Please remember that all transactions are between you and the company.

Academic Pricing on Software from Kivuto

As part of our Campus license agreement with Microsoft, Babson College is able to offer graduate students selected Microsoft titles, including Office 2007, for the cost of media and shipping and handling. Through the Kivuto site, students may purchase one copy of media (CD) for each of the available products. Employees of Babson who need one or more of these applications on their home computer in order to do Babson work may also purchase disks through e-Academy. Undergraduate students are provided a copy of all licensed Microsoft products on their Babson-issued laptop, and may not purchase disks from e-Academy.

Note: Microsoft Office and NOD32 AntiVirus are available to download at no charge. You must be on campus with your computer to do this.
