The St. Ambrose University 3+2 Master's of Finance program is designed to allow students to complete their undergraduate degree and earn a Master's of Finance in two years, attending St. Ambrose following their junior year.

The program is specifically designed for students from Guangdong, reflecting the need of the students to integrate into the new learning environment while taking a curriculum designed to match the Candidate Body of Knowledge of the CFA institute, preparing the student for the *CFA1 series of examinations. The first year, the student will take primarily undergraduate courses in Finance, with specialized graduate level courses allowing the student to succeed at St. Ambrose University and in the Master's level courses.

Upon completion of the first year, students in good standing will earn their undergraduate degree from Guangdong University and will continue on in their Master's study at St. Ambrose.

In the second year, the students will primarily take graduate courses in Finance, earning their Masters in Finance upon successful completion of courses and the passing of a comprehensive examination.
