Master of Business Administration Concentration: Cannabis Commercialization

Cannabis Commercialization Concentration in Rowan's MBA

Why an MBA Concentration in Cannabis Commercialization?

An MBA Concentration in Cannabis Commercialization is an ideal option for those who want to expand their career options in or adjacent to the rapidly evolving cannabis industry, which is anticipated to become a multi-billion-dollar economic driver across the USA—and beyond.

Career opportunities related to cannabis are vast, and crossover talent is in high demand. Plant-touching verticals, such as cultivation, extraction, manufacturing, and retail, need experts from other industries to adapt, refine, and extend best practices into the highly regulated cannabis market. There is a 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 verticals or ancillary cannabis business career pathways—or want to explore options in both categories—you can tailor the Cannabis Commercialization Concentration to support your career goals.
