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 $1.5 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
