Barbara holds a Masters of Instruction in Economic Education from University of Delaware.  She has successfully developed and installed the CEEE’s Keys to Financial Success financial literacy curriculum in more than two dozen Delaware high schools. In a partnership with the Philadelphia Federal Reserve, this program has been extended into Pennsylvania and Delaware. Her passion for economic and personal finance education is evident in every aspect of her teacher and student programming.

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.
