History

Alfred Lerner Hall History
The business school building was originally dedicated on October 17, 1997, as MBNA America Hall. The building was named in recognition of the former MBNA America, a leading innovator in the credit card industry and great supporter of educational and human service initiatives in Delaware. On December 12, 2002, in memory of Alfred Lerner and in recognition of the generous endowment from the MBNA Foundation, the building was renamed to Alfred Lerner Hall.

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.
