The bachelor of science in Cannabis Business provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to launch a business in the rapidly expanding industry related to cannabis.  This program is designed for future managers, supervisors, and entrepreneurs in a cannabis enterprise.  The program has at its foundation the basics of business and business management and then applies those principles to specific cannabis businesses such as cultivation facilities and dispensaries.  This program is well rounded and is designed to lead to a wide range of employment opportunities.  The unique issues related to state, federal, provincial and international laws are evaluated and analyzed in order to plan, develop and launch a cannabis business within legal constraints.  These courses, along with the common professional business core courses, will provide students with the knowledge, training, and practical experience required to become successful small business owners, counselors, and employees.
