In this video, University of Delaware students majoring in management share their favorite things about their major. UD Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics students Matthew Guckenberger, Michael Tucker and Regan Riley talk about their favorite classes, their future career goals and more. This video is part of the Lerner College’s “What I Love About My Major” video series.


Matthew Guckenberger: What makes my major unique is the fact that we get to work with a bunch of different people in order to tackle the same problem and make it work as efficiently as possible.

Michael Tucker: For my career, I’d like to be in a position to lead the right way and above all else, help others. But I believe the knowledge and experience I’ve gained throughout my major has really solidified my ability to do that in any environment that I choose, hopefully one that fits my passions.

Matthew Guckenberger: I have a career goals is to eventually manage the supply chain for a multinational corporation. And right now I’m in the middle of taking operations management classes, which have to do with when you’re ordering inventory and how to deal with different problems that come up in that system.

Regan Riley: I just got an internship for the summer which I’m really excited about, and I think Lerner kind of helped set the foundation for all the skills I needed to achieve that internship.

Michael Tucker: I believe the Lerner management major really emphasizes a strong foundation of both theoretical study of business as well as real world applications that you can’t find anywhere else.
