The Chicago Booth Legal Cannabis Markets Club exists to create educational,
professional, and networking opportunities for Booth MBA students to explore
the developing cannabis industry. Despite the unique regulatory and structural
challenges posed within the Cannabis market, this industry is rapidly innovating
and experiencing unprecedented growth, with 69% of Americans stating that
they approve legalizing Cannabis in the next few years and a 30% annual
industry growth rate.
To prepare for the eventuality that is federally-legalized Cannabis, our
organization will introduce students to a variety of experiences to enhance their
understanding, skills, and connections to successfully enter the industry across
sectors like healthcare, private equity financing and venture capital, food and
beverage, operations and analytics, and beyond.
