About Lerner College

Graduate and Executive Programs Contributions

  1. A Premiere Research and Graduate University
    • Develop a long-range plan to elevate professional graduate programs into national and international prominence. Conduct a comprehensive curriculum review of the MBA and EMBA program requirements to revise and enhance content.
    • Strengthen EDGE principles in the core/required classes. Utilize technology, internet and web options, and additional media to promote graduate programs and to incorporate additional delivery and learning methods into the coursework.
    • Determine appropriate strategies in efforts to be recognized in the Business Week Part Time program rankings.
  2. Excellence in Professional Education
    • Develop and initiate executive education short courses and certificate programs.
  3. The Initiative for the Planet
  4. The Global Initiative
    • Increase international presence by promoting exchange programs, joint degree programs and new study abroad initiatives with partner universities.
  5. The Engaged University
    • Expand outreach efforts to determine if additional opportunities exist for offering onsite programs similar to the UD MBA currently being offered at AstraZeneca.
    • In collaboration with the newly-established College Career Services unit, support efforts to develop additional internship, mentorship, and placement opportunities.
    • Strengthen partnerships with MBA alumni and the business community, possibly through student/alumni roundtable discussions, an MBA Career Fair, or guest lecturers through an MBA Speaker Series and/or an enhanced Tyler Executive Leadership Lecture Series.

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.
