Internships & Jobs

The E-Internship Program is open to all university students, regardless of major or area of study. The program places students in entrepreneurial environments, ranging from technology transfer to marketing research to pre-seed and late stage new ventures. Positions requiring technical and/or business skills are available.

E-Internships differ from other internships in three ways: (1) students are immersed in entrepreneurial environments that foster the ability to work independently and adapt to change, (2) students are required to participate in professional development activities via an internship course, and (3) students are paid for their work.

Since many entrepreneurial organizations lack human resource capabilities, applications are heavily prescreened, and employers are presented with a short list of internship candidates. Prescreening involves the application of employer-provided criteria and may also involve third-party screening and preliminary interviews. Priority is given to students who are enrolled in an E-Studies academic program.

If you're looking for an E-Internship or if you're an employer with an open position, please email us at hornprogram@udel.edu.

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.
