Manhattan’s LIM College is partnering with the Association of Cannabis Workers (ACW) Local Union 420 to offer a four-week, online Cannabis Industry Fundamentals course for ACW members. LIM College is the first college in the nation to offer Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Professional Studies degrees in the Business of Cannabis.  

The course is expected to begin in early March and cover the history and current state of the cannabis industry, career paths in cannabis, and marketing cannabis products. The course will also help students to understand consumers, regulations, compliance, and supply chain considerations, the college said in a press release. The program will be taught by Michael Zaytsev, an industry expert and academic director of cannabis degree programs at LIM College. 

“The cannabis industry needs graduates who can hit the ground running with in-depth knowledge of the unique nature of the business. LIM is leading the way in readying students who will have cannabis-specific knowledge and credentials in hand, putting them head and shoulders above others entering the industry. We are very pleased to collaborate with ACW Local 420 to offer this opportunity to its members.” — Zaytsev in a statement 

Course participants will also be invited to on-campus LIM College events and virtual sessions where they can network with potential employers and others who share their interest in the cannabis industry. 

In a statement, ACW Local 420 President Josh Gottlieb described the course as “a great first step on a career path that is expected to provide tremendous opportunities.”  

“LIM College is a pioneer in cannabis education,” he said, “and our decision to collaborate with them will help us ensure that ACW Local 420 members have access to the cannabis industry’s best training, jobs, and wages.” 

Course tuition is $750, and LIM College will provide a certificate of completion for students who complete the course.
