The Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics offers baccalaureate degrees in Accounting; Economics; Economics Education; Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation; Finance; Hospitality Industry Studies; Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management; International Business Studies; Management; Management Information Systems; Marketing; Operations Management; and Sport Management. Honors degrees are available in many of these degree programs.
Minors are offered in Advertising, Business Administration, Economics, Entrepreneurial Studies, Global Enterprise Technology, International Business Studies, International Business/International Business with Language, Management Information Systems, and Restaurant Management. Enrollment in minors is limited, and certain qualifications must be met. The Certificate of Business Essentials is also offered to non-business majors.
Undergraduate students are admitted as freshmen into the baccalaureate degree programs referenced above or as Undeclared Business majors. Undeclared students must select a major in the Lerner College by October 1 of their sophomore year. Students already admitted to the University of Delaware who are matriculated in other programs may apply to change their degree program to Accounting, Economics, Economics Education, Finance, Hospitality Industry Studies, International Business Studies, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Operations Management or Sport Management after successfully completing the required microeconomics course, macroeconomics course, and calculus course, and earning a minimum of 28 credits at the University of Delaware. Students may apply to change their major into Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management after successful completion of 15 credits. Students who wish to change their major to Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation must complete an application form, which is available at www.udel.edu/horn. Students should consult with the appropriate department as to application deadlines. Review for admission consideration will first be performed for students who have completed all their coursework (including the microeconomics, macroeconomics, and calculus courses) at the University of Delaware. The major criterion used for admission selection is academic performance. Applications for admission to the minors are also reviewed and have similar criteria. Additional information and application forms are available in the five departments; application forms are also available on-line.
Lerner College students who were previously dismissed for academic deficiency and are now applying for readmission to the University may be eligible for readmission into their degree program in the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics; these students should contact the assistant dean for advisement.
