International Business with Language

The minor in International Business with Language requires completion of the 18 credits required for the minor in International Business plus completion of at least two courses at the 200-level taught in the language of choice for a total of 24 credits. Students selecting the International Business Minor with Language may count one language course as part of the nine credits of International and Region Studies courses; however, only courses taught in the language of choice count toward the minor. Students are encouraged to incorporate a short-term study abroad program into their course of study, especially a Foreign Language and Literatures program to a country that speaks the student's target language.

Students seeking a minor in International Business may take only one of the required International Business and Economics Courses at another institution unless advanced permission is granted for credit earned in residential study-abroad courses.

Only open to majors in Lerner College (excluding Economics)

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.
