Undergraduate Students


Lerner students who have obtained an internship may register for one of the internship courses offered by the Lerner College to fulfill the University Discovery Learning Experience (DLE) requirement or another requirement for their degree. Enrollment in these courses is restricted and requires instructor approval. Please contact the individual listed below for further information:

Lerner students are also encouraged to consider the Global Enterprise Technology (GET) program. Students from ALL MAJORS can enroll in the GET minor to understand GET systems through coursework and hands-on experience. GET students either complete a yearlong consulting project or participate in an extended paid internship, with close mentoring from executives in highly successful companies, including J.P. Morgan, IBM, Cisco, Ernst & Young, GE and Nationwide.

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.
