Cannabis Commercialization COGS

Cannabis Commercialization COGS

Cannabis Commercialization Certificate of Graduate Study

A Graduate Certificate in Cannabis Commercialization is an ideal option for those that want to expand their career options in or adjacent to the rapidly evolving cannabis industry. The rapidly evolving cannabis industry is anticipated to become a multi-billion dollar economic driver across the USA – and beyond. Career opportunities related to cannabis are vast, and cross-over talent is in high demand. Plant-touching verticals such as cultivation, extraction, manufacturing and/or retail need experts from other industries to adapt, extend, and expand best practices into the highly regulated cannabis market. There is strong and growing demand for ancillary businesses complementing and serving the cannabis industry, with potential career pathways in services such as accounting and tax, finance and banking, data analysis, marketing and branding, supply chain, and human resources.

Whether you are drawn to Plant Touching or Ancillary Cannabis Business career pathways - or want to explore options in both categories - you can tailor the Cannabis Commercialization Graduate Certificate to support your career goals.

Each COGS is a valuable stand-alone credential for those seeking to refresh skills in their current roles. The COGS program can each also serve as a micro-credential on the way toward earning a degree, allowing students to sample content prior to being formally admitted into Rowan’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a Cannabis Commercialization Area of Concentration.

The COGS are also ideal for those who have not yet taken the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) as GMAT scores are not a requirement for admission to the COGS program.

Students who wish to later pursue the MBA Program at Rowan may have all COGS credits transferred into the MBA degree to satisfy a Cannabis Commercialization Area of Concentration; for this option, students must work with their Academic Advisor to ensure courses selected will satisfy Area of Concentration requirements.
