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.
