About Lerner College

Faculty Involvement

The formal assurance of learning process in the Lerner College involves program goals, measures, outcomes and “closing the loop.” These are essential steps, but important improvements in learning also come from the day-to-day actions of faculty. Some of these actions are directly related to program learning goals, while others are not linked to a specific goal but are consistent with the overall objective of enhancing student learning. The following faculty input comes from surveys completed during the Fall 2009 and 2010 semesters.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.4 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Fund, 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 Anu Sivaraman, who is among Social Media Marketing Magazine’s “Top 100 Marketing Professors on Twitter” and MBAprograms.org’s “Top 50 Marketing Professors on Twitter” - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer experience-driven learning and emphasize evidence-based analytics methods to enrich the student experience. Here, finance students visit New York City’s financial districts for a first-hand look at markets trading and to meet with UD alumni.

Charles W. Horn, AS75, and wife Patricia, recently made a $3 million commitment to enhance and expand entrepreneurial studies.
