Global Enterprise Technology

Global Enterprise Technology Curriculum

Option 1: GET Immersion Internship

The Global Enterprise Technology (GET) Immersion Experience is an innovative, extended work experience for undergraduate students. Students’ classroom knowledge of large-scale information systems is brought to life by immersive experiences through full-time employment. Through immersion, students develop management, critical thinking and communications skills—skills necessary for success in a global work environment. The GET Immersion Experience is open to qualified students from any UD college in any discipline of study. The GET internships run from June through December each year, but the application process starts the previous September.  To qualify, students must have taken MISY225, MISY261, or CISC181.  We also recommend taking MISY330 or a comparable course. You must apply through the Syracuse Application site and be accepted. You may then apply for any position that is available.  More information is available 

Option 1 Immersion Curriculum* (3 credits each)

  • MISY261 Business Information Systems
  • MISY330 Database Design and Implementation or CISC437 Database Systems
  • MISY427 Management of Information Systems 
  • MISY370 Large IT Projects: Business and IT View (Taken During Internship)
  • MISY375 GET Immersion Experience Internship (Taken During Internship)
  • MISY420 Global IT Enabled Innovation and Change (Taken During Internship)
  • MISY421 Global Business Communications (Taken During Internship)

*Students in the Immersion Option will participate in a 6-month extended internship with a global organization, which runs from June to December. Academic content will be delivered through a combination of residencies and blended learning classes during the internship.

Option 2: On-Campus Option
The designers of the GET Minor knew that students have busy lives. For that reason, the GET Minor was designed to be flexible. For students who cannot commit to a six-month off-campus internship, the non-immersion option is ideal. In addition to a dedicated curriculum, students can take classes in Information Assurance, Cybersecurity, and Mobile Application Development. 

Option 2 Non-Immersion Curriculum (3 credits each)

  • MISY261 Business Information Systems
  • MISY330 Database Design and Implementation or CISC437 Database Systems
  • MISY427 Management of Information Systems 
  • MISY430 Systems Analysis & Implementation or CISC475 Advanced Software Engineering
  • 3 GET Elective Classes


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.
