Biography

Marion holds an undergraduate degree in history from Smith College, M.A. degrees in education from Boston University and economics from Drexel University, and an M.B.A from the University of Delaware.  She coordinates the Stock Market Game, a national program offered by the Center for Delaware students in grades 4-12.  Marion also teaches Civics and Economics for the Elementary Teacher, an undergraduate course jointly sponsored by the Center and the School of Public Policy and Administration.  Before joining the Center in 2005, Marion taught economics and history in the Brandywine School District.  She then worked at the MBNA Foundation for eight years as a grants administrator recommending funding levels to support classroom projects in Delaware.   

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 MBAprograms.org’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.
