Behavioral Lab

Our behavioral lab is a world class resource for researchers in the Department of Business Administration within the Lerner College. Since it began in 1998, with the help of a generous gift from E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., the lab has managed research projects that have focused on a wide range of issues relevant to both marketing and management strategy including studies designed to understand those factors that affect consumer memory and attitudes toward brands, the impact of brand image on self-perceptions and brand choice, methods for reducing substance abuse, ways to improve consumer’s willingness to save money and give to charities, managerial negotiations, group decision making, and issues related to fairness and justice among others. Data from our lab have been included in numerous top-tier publications and were generated with the help of many participants, including undergraduate and graduate students as well as non-student participants from the university and the community.

The lab has two rooms used for the collection of computer-based studies (with 22 and 12 computers), four smaller breakout rooms, and two control rooms. We are currently using Qualtrics and MediaLab for running studies, and Sona System for the subject pool administration.

The behavioral lab is located at the basement of Purnell (in rooms 30, 32, and 40). Please contact the following if you have any questions:

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.
