Undergraduate Minor in Entrepreneurial Studies

The minor in Entrepreneurial Studies helps students to acquire knowledge and skills that are useful across nearly all possible career paths – from starting a business to driving innovation within large companies to developing sustainable solutions for social issues. The minor emphasizes experiential learning through startups (new businesses or social enterprises) to provide students with first-hand experience in developing innovative ideas and putting them into action. The minor is open to students from all undergraduate degree programs and majors.

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.
