Horn Program in EntrepreneurshipHORN multicolor box

Master of Science in Entrepreneurship & Design

Thank you for your interest in the Horn Program’s Master of Science in Entrepreneurship & Design (ENTD). The ENTD program is intended for anyone who has earned a bachelor’s degree, possesses the entrepreneurial spirit and wants to change the world – locally or globally.

The ENTD program is a graduate degree program of the Lerner College of Business & Economics and involves partnerships between the Horn Program in Entrepreneurship, the College of Engineering's Department of Mechanical Engineering and the College of Arts & Sciences. The program includes interdisciplinary, experiential courses focused on entrepreneurship, creativity & design and prototyping & new product development. Courses are augmented by enrichment opportunities such as funding competitions, mentoring programs, networking events and a variety of useful resources. Completion of required courses and participation in enrichment activities provides students with the knowledge, skills, connections and access to resources needed to manifest innovation and thrive in a rapidly changing world.

We have attempted to provide answers to any questions you might have about the ENTD program on the following pages:

However, please reach out if you have any questions by email 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.
