Return on Investment

Graduate students at Ambrose experience personal growth and satisfaction, develop as leaders, and take more control of their careers. By investing both time and money in your future, the benefits you reap are sure to surpass your expectations.


Not just the cutting-edge, but the leading-edge

Quality of faculty goes beyond professional credentials: They have a clear vision of how their fields are evolving, and they prepare you for changes on the horizon.

Your professors can challenge you in areas that you consider yourself to be a subject-matter expert in and introduce you to new perspectives and intellectual discipline you can incorporate professionally. Because they keep learning as the knowledge base expands and technology becomes more sophisticated, they are outstanding role models and mentors.


Broadening horizons

Professionals need to understand how they fit into a larger, global society. Long committed to social justice, St. Ambrose provides opportunities to expand worldviews and internationalize resumes by studying and serving abroad.

  • Master of Occupational Therapy students examine health care and educational institutions in Brazil to compare their experiences at home with those of their peers in South America.
  • Master of Business Administration students enrolled in Operations Management have spent two weeks in Europe, drawing comparisons between European and American workplaces and the role of culture in organizations.


Career jumpstart

Employers respect the education St. Ambrose delivers, and many invest in their employees' advanced degree programs. We have forged institutional partnerships with leading professional organizations, such as Deere and Company, Genesis Health System, Rock Island Arsenal, and Rock Valley Physical Therapy. Ambrose is partnered with the Iowa Department of Education to provide full endorsement opportunities to currently employed special education teachers.

Ambrose's reputation is one reason Genesis Health System partnered with us to build our multi-million-dollar Health Sciences Education Center.

Your degree can also make you eligible for national accreditation in teaching and open up more career opportunities. In fact:

  • The Ambrose alumni network expands your professional contacts in your own field and related professions. Many alumni come back to the university to meet with students and facilitate relationships between the university and their employers.


Only at Ambrose

Rene Robinson, RIA ASC, says, "We learn to teach and get experience speaking in front of an audience. We're gaining all these transferable skills, which is empowering."
