The University of Denver is adding a new discipline to its educational program. It will be a course on the business peculiarities of the weed industry. The topic of marijuana is not new to the university as it already provides classes on cannabis law and weed journalism.
The University of Denver will offer a "Business of Marijuana" course that is designed to explore various issues of the cannabis industry. The school’s officials have announced that DU’s Daniels College of Business will start the new course on March 28. It is the university's third class centered on legal cannabis.
The new marijuana curriculum will help students understand the different sides of cannabis business, from cultivation and selling to marketing and security. The course will also dive into the subject of how the industry matches up to other economic sectors.
Paul Seaborn, the instructor of the course, says that the class will provide valuable information about the similarities and differences between the cannabis industry and other business fields. It will also allow to study the unique features of the industry and the common issues the marijuana sector and other similar fields experienced in their early stages.
The new program will be offered both to undergraduate and graduate students as a general business and management elective credit.
