About Northern State University

NSU Master’s in Banking and Financial Services now offered fully online

ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University’s Banking and Financial Services master’s degree program is now offered completely online – making it even more convenient for professionals looking to advance their career.

The program used to require a summer residency, but students would often have to use vacation time to come to campus, said NSU School of Business Interim Dean Dr. Doug Ohmer. If it didn’t work out, they would have to wait an entire year before they could finish the program.

ABERDEEN, S.D. – During medical school, Dr. William Hampton was known as “the trumpet player guy”—he would often set up in the lobby of the student center and play his horn during breaks from studying.

Music and medicine are both major parts of Hampton’s life, and thanks to an educational start at Northern State University, he got to pursue both.
