About Lerner College

Program Learning Objectives

The departments of Accounting and MIS, Business Administration, Economics, and Finance, along with the MBA programs office, developed a set of program learning objectives that the faculty deemed as important in measuring learning competencies for each specific major. In conjunction with the College Assurance of Learning Taskforce, a series of assessment methods were implemented to measure to what extent the students are learning the intended objectives. The purpose of the assessment process is to measure how well students are demonstrating competency of the objectives that the faculty have set forth. An assurance of learning analysis is then reviewed by the chair to determine how the assessment results will be used to improve the learning process and “close the loop.”

Through selected exam questions, student presentations, course evaluations, written reports and additional methods for measuring competencies, each department conducted an outcomes assessment analysis. To view the program learning objectives for each of the College’s programs, along with the assessment method and results, select the appropriate department listed 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
