Updated: Wednesday, October 2 2013, 08:50 AM CDT
AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa State University is offering a new finance graduate program at its business college.
The College of Business is launching the full-time master of finance graduate program for the spring 2014 semester.
The program is being marketed as the first of its kind in Iowa. The Board of Regents approved its creation at an August meeting.
The 40-credit master's degree will teach core finance topics such as financial analysis and valuation. The program will also offer courses in the school's departments of economics and statistics.
Officials say the program prepares students for careers in areas like corporate finance, financial analysis and risk management.
