Choosing what to study is one of the biggest decisions of your life. Where you choose to study is just as important.

At Lerner, you can make the most of opportunities to learn, innovate, research and experience business in one of the nation’s most important centers of business.

There are dozens of reasons to choose the Lerner College for your business degree, but our students agree that these five things figured heavily in their decision to choose Lerner:

1. Unique opportunities

Hands-on learning experiences happen in and out of class – in learning labs like the student-operated restaurant Vita Nova, the Marriott Center for Tourism and Hospitality and the Geltzeiler Trading Center. Learning and career opportunities overlap in internships with top firms and as students manage the $2-million Blue Hen Investment Fund. And there are more than 100 study abroad courses for undergrads and grads.

2. Location

The beautiful UD campus is centrally located within a few hours of our nation’s capital, the metro areas of Philadelphia and Baltimore, the growing tech scene in Wilmington, DE and the financial centers in New York City. Plus, Delaware is the home of more than a million corporations and the Delaware court system, which sets precedents in corporate governance for the entire U.S.

3. Our Reputation

Lerner is the only business school in the state that is AACSB-accredited in both business and accounting. Both Lerner and UD are regularly included in the “best of” lists by the Princeton Review, U.S. News and World Report and other higher education ranking agencies.

4. Accomplished Faculty

Lerner faculty care about each student’s success. They are also focused on scholarship and research relevant to their fields and to business education.

5. Connections

You’ll make career and networking connections with successful business leaders through Lerner’s 23,000-strong alumni network, on-campus speakers and student clubs. You’ll have opportunities for internships, executive mentoring and job interviews with the same top firms that recruit at Ivy League business schools.
