College Goals

The three College goals are:

  1. Students will learn to critically evaluate the influence of legal, ethical, cultural or global factors on business or economic environments/ decisions.
  2. Students will learn to present logical and persuasive oral or written arguments analyzing a current issue.
  3. Students will learn to use appropriate computer applications, quantitative reasoning, or research skills to analyze solutions to business or economic problems. 

In assessing the extent to which these goals were met through selected college-wide courses, these questions were added to student course evaluations:

  1. QID 7261: This question is asked college-wide and may or may not apply to this particular course. Did this class enable you to critically evaluate the influence of legal, ethical, cultural or global factors on business or economic environments/ decisions?
  2. QID 7262: This question is asked college-wide and may or may not apply to this particular course. Did this class enable you to present logical and persuasive oral or written arguments analyzing a current issue in topics covered in this course?
  3. QID 7263: This question is asked college-wide and may or may not apply to this particular course. Did this class enable you to use appropriate computer applications, quantitative reasoning, or research skills to analyze solutions to business or economic problems?

At the end of each semester, an analysis is done to determine the results. The results for each semester may be found by clicking the term below.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.
