A Global Perspective
More than 130 international students study here
First and Best
Offering the very first MS in Information Technology Management program in the Midwest, St. Ambrose prepares IT professionals to advance into corporate management and business professionals looking to move into IT.
Cost of Attending
In order to receive an I-20 from SAU, an international applicant must show proof of funds that exceed the cost of attending the university for an academic year.
International applicants who have met the academic standards for admittance, but who need to improve their English language proficiency, are encouraged to apply.
INTERLINK offers a rigorous curriculum on the SAU campus that includes assignments such as group discussion, interviews, research, community involvement, writing projects, and presentations.
After completing INTERLINK, students are able to:
- Speak English more fluently and write effective essays
- Understand spoken and written English and conduct research and report findings in English
- Understand different cultures and apply and improve their critical thinking skills
- Engage in group work and in team activities
- Use the Internet, email, and computer technology
Interested in a master's program?
INTERLINK and the graduate programs for Organizational Leadership, Information Technology Management, and Business Administration have partnered to create a Pre-Master's Business Pathway Program for students who also need to improve their English skills.
