We’re investing in our community to transform business and society.

We the faculty, staff, students and alumni of the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics welcome you. For more than 100 years, UD’s Lerner College has invested in its students and communities, giving back philanthropically and with its valuable skills. The Lerner College has been able to make these meaningful contributions in part because of its unique location in Delaware, amongst the nation’s most important centers of business.

Founded as a private academy in 1743, today the University of Delaware is a research-intensive, technologically advanced university committed to excellence in education, research and service.
