Department of Accounting & Management Information Systems

Student Clubs

The Department has a Student Advisory Board (SAB) with a goal of providing a feedback mechanism for students to express their concerns or suggestions regarding the Department as well as for them to have input into the Department’s decision making processes. The SAB is comprised of accounting and MIS majors, including officers from all three departmental student organizations: Accounting Student Association (ASA), Association for Information Systems (AIS), and National Association of Black Accountants (NABA).

Accounting Students Association

The Accounting Students Association (ASA) is an organization to enhance the involvement between UD accounting students and professional firms as well as to connect various levels of students to share knowledge. ASA meetings and events are open to all students. You can see more about some of the activities of the ASA at

National Association of Black Accountants

NABA addresses the professional needs of its members and to build leaders that shape the future of the accounting and finance professions with an unfaltering commitment to inspire the same in their successors.

The mission is to further members’ educational and professional goals in accounting, consulting, finance, and information technology. Their motto is “Lifting as We Climb”. For more information about joining the organization, Jennifer Joe, Whitney Family Professor of Accounting. 

Association for Information Systems

The Association for Information Systems (AIS) is a student organization to help you learn more and advance your opportunities in the field of business technology.

We sponsor information sessions and networking opportunities with firms that hire interns and graduates in our field to help you advance your career. For more information about joining the organization, please contact Dr. Andrea Everard.

Other student clubs

The Alfred Lerner College of Business & Economics is home to a number of student organizations and honor societies that provide major specific and career development opportunities. The UD also has a chapter of ALPFA (Association for Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting). For more information about joining the organization, please contact Dr. Jeff Gillespie.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, 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.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.
