FINC Advising

Academic Advising at the University of Delaware is a shared practice throughout the institution that supports teaching, mentoring and learning. Collaborative relationships among students, faculty advisors, and professional advisors support students' development and achievement of their educational goals.

As a junior or senior Finance major, your Academic Advisor is Mr. Tim Detwiler and he is available to help you select courses, choose or switch your major, explore careers or graduate education, and make sure you're on track to complete your degree requirements. You are encouraged to visit Mr. Detwiler at least once every semester, or whenever you need some help with your academic program.

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’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.
