NutraCast: SCNM launches graduate degree program ‘for the industry, by the industry’

Related tags Education Supply chain Regulation Sustainability

Despite being a multi-billion dollar industry, there are no graduate degree programs from accredited academic institutions for executives in the nutrition business sector—until now. The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences recently announced its new curriculum, the Executive Master of Science in Nutrition Business Leadership Program (MSNBL).

Geared toward working professionals on an executive-level pathway, the program trains students in the nutritional sciences, supply chain, regulations, leadership and management—all specific to the natural foods and dietary supplement industry.

The MSNBL was developed with input from global natural products industry experts and thought-leaders to educate and inspire current and future leaders to grow the industry through evidence-based and sustainable practices that safely, ethically, and effectively enhance the health and well-being of the people and communities they serve.

Gena Kadar DC, MS, EdL, CNS, founding dean of SCNM's School of Nutrition, described it as a program ‘built by the industry, for the industry.’

The 39-credit program is offered in an online format and can be completed in 15 months. Kadar said she is excited for the MSNBL to kick off, with the admissions deadline coming up on September 17.

To hear more on what the program entails, listen to the NutraCast.
