The University of Vermont, Portland State University, the University of Portland, and San Diego State University are among the schools in the U.S. to have “business of craft beer” programs on their rosters, reports the Star Tribune.
The trend follows the growth of craft breweries; there are currenlty more than 4,000 in the U.S. today, from more than 1,400 in 2005, according to the Brewers Association.
Portland State University started its online business of craft brewing program in 2013 and has since become one of the school’s most successful professional certificate programs. The University of Vermont’s new online business of craft beer certificate program starts in February.
