PharmD/MS in Organizational Leadership
The Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Science in Organizational Leadership program offers a powerful combination of pharmacy and management for those interested in the practice of pharmacy in a business environment. The program is offered collaboratively between Western New England University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and College of Business. Graduates of the combined degree program will receive two separate degrees, one in business and one in pharmacy. Pursuing both degrees will allow students to take advantage of cross credits, where six credits of business coursework can be applied toward the PharmD degree, and nine credits of pharmacy coursework can be applied toward the MS in Organizational Leadership degree.
Candidates for the PharmD/MS in Organizational Leadership program apply for admission after the completion of their first semester of the PharmD program at Western New England University. Admissions for the Organizational Leadership program are rolling. You are required to submit an official copy of your transcript, GMAT scores (unless waivered), two recommendations, two assigned essays, and a résumé or curriculum vitae along with your application.
The Pharmacy curriculum entails a competency-based framework, using integrated content and teaching, problem-based approaches when appropriate, integrated technology, and experiential exposure threaded throughout. The curriculum is designed to incrementally develop strong scientific foundations (in the biomedical, pharmaceutical, social and administrative, and clinical sciences) and professional skills. The MS in Organizational Leadership curriculum offers courses that develop skills in leadership, problem solving, decision making, organizational behavior and theory, leading change, and contemporary issues in leadership. You will be exposed to theories and best practices for problem solving, decision-making, and research, as well as identify your personal leadership style, strengths, and skills, and use them to impact your work.
