Chemical manufacturing has long been the state's major economic enterprise, which explains why DuPont, Hercules, AstraZeneca, and other well-known chemical and biotechnology companies are headquartered here

Delaware's economy relies heavily on agriculture, automotive and chemical manufacturing, financial services, government, mining, and general services. Chemical manufacturing has long been the state's major economic enterprise, which explains why DuPont, Hercules, AstraZeneca, and other well-known chemical and biotechnology companies are headquartered here. The federal government is another significant factor in the state's economy, and provides a large number of jobs for Delawareans each year. The top employers in Delaware are DuPont, MBNA Corp., Christina Care Health System, the federal government, and the state of Delaware.

Those who want to enter the largest industries or work for the state's top employers will most likely need to have a college degree. Most importantly, you should make sure your college degree comes from accredited brick-and-mortar schools or online colleges or universities in Delaware. While having a degree is not a guarantee for employment, it may increase your chances of landing an interview or being considered for a job in your desired field.

Those who want to attend a well-known public university and complete classes online can do so through the University of Delaware and Delaware State University online distance learning programs. University of Delaware Online prides itself on offering the same quality and effectiveness in its distance learning courses as it does in its on-campus courses. Delaware State University's Distance Learning Center offers 100% online courses, web-enhanced courses, and blended learning courses in numerous subjects.

If you prefer to attend a predominantly online institution, then you'll have a few big and small online colleges to choose from in Delaware. The biggest for-profit online universities in the state are University of Phoenix and Strayer University. Both Delaware online colleges offer a wide assortment of distance education courses and online degree programs. Many of the smaller online colleges are also certificate- or degree-granting technical or clinical institutes, such as Dawn Career Institute, Delaware College of Art and Design, and Harris School of Business.
