The NDMU Difference

The Certificate in Leadership and Entrepreneurship, which was first offered during the 2018-19 academic year, is comprised of five courses, three of which – Pharmacy Practice Management, Human Resource Management, and Leadership & Pharmacy Practice – were already built into the standard doctorate curriculum. The two additions, Fundamentals of Financial Management and Entrepreneurship, are typically taken by students in their second or third year on campus.

Ready to Impact Patients' Lives

Student, NDMU Class of 2021
The NDMU School of Pharmacy has a great balance between didactics and leadership/extracurricular opportunities, which has prepared me to enter the real world and impact patients’ lives. The thing I love most about NDMU is the culture and environment the school sets for its students. As a class, we came here as strangers and now we are parting ways as one big family.
