As New York works to roll out its adult-use program, the NYU School of Professional Studies (NYU SPS) is implementing a certificate in the Business of Cannabis in spring 2023 to stay on top of market demand and support cannabis career pathways.

The certificate in the Business of Cannabis will consist of various courses designed to give students an in-depth understanding of the industry. Industry professionals will teach the courses.

The certificate will consist of an introductory course: Overview of the Cannabis Industry and four core foundational courses: Managing a Cannabis Dispensary and the Regulation of Operations; Cannabis Sales and Marketing; The Chemistry of Cannabis: Medicine, Wellness, and Product Use; and Cannabis and Social Equity Policy, according to a press release.

Students will also be required to take one elective course.

“NYU SPS developed this program in collaboration with industry professionals and thought leaders in the field, many of whom will also teach our courses,” said June Chin, MD, an adjunct professor at the school who will teach The Chemistry of Cannabis: Medicine, Wellness, and Product Use in the Spring. “This certificate provides a distinctive credential for those seeking to develop the skills to transition into this thriving market.”
