Medical tourism or wellness tourism has been around for centuries, but its growth as a viable, mature industry is hastening in a manner similar to the expansion the hotel industry experienced from the 1950s to the 1980s. Propagated in 1950s and 1960s, hotel systems reached maturation in the late 1970s, becoming an efficient and differential industry in management systems, marketing, finance and accounting, measurement, benchmarking, and disciplined in operations (Steve Rushmore). In this paper we address the crucial role that the hotel industry can play in complementing medical tourism's positive developments.

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.
