About James A. Boyd

James Boyd, PharmD/MBA, currently serves as Associate Dean for Administration and Professor of Pharmacy Practice. He was born and raised in Nebraska and joined Campbell University in January 1990 as an Assistant Professor in Pharmacy Practice. His initial teaching responsibilities included pharmacy administrative offerings and geriatrics. As the program developed he focused his teaching on pharmacy law and management. In cooperation with the Lundy Fetterman School of Business, one of his early responsibilities was to development a Dual PharmD/MBA program that was launched in 1991. Boyd serves as the Founding Director. In 1991 at a national meeting the dual program was announced and without one another’s knowledge a second school unveiled. Both programs share being the first university to offer this pharmacy/business dual degree combination.

Dr. Boyd completed his BS in pharmacy in 1977 followed by his PharmD in 1980 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Shortly after starting his pharmacy career as pharmacist and then pharmacy manager six months later he realized the need for additional education in business. A few years later after advancing to director of pharmacies, he enrolled in the MBA program at University of Nebraska and finished the degree in 1987.

Jim started working full time in pharmacy education in 1987 at Creighton University and then moved to Campbell. During his career at Campbell he has had the opportunity to teach courses in several areas, most in an administrative related area. He also serves on many university and college committees and pursues scholarship. His research interest includes community pharmacy ownership, pharmacy law, strategic planning, business analysis, financial benchmarking in community and hospital pharmacies.

Jim is married to his wife Susan since 1976 and they have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. His hobbies include throwing pottery, woodworking and tinkering with an old car. Campbell’s Christian mission is what sparked the original interest in moving 1,400 miles from home and still provides purpose and comfort to his career. He feels very blessed to be affiliated with the people that make up Campbell University.
