Why Choose a Club Management Minor?
The Club Management minor provides students with a background knowledge in the world of private and semi-private clubs such as yacht, city, athletic, tennis, and country clubs. Students learn about the unique nature of private clubs including things such as membership categories, board structure, dues, assessments, minimums, rules, and by-laws. Other topics such as event planning, facilities management, leisure activities, food & beverage operations, and financial management are covered as well. Throughout their studies in this minor, students will have the opportunity to earn nationally recognized certifications such as AHLEI Contemporary Club Management and TIPS, as part of their required courses. Additionally, students are required to complete at least one 400 hour internship for which they are paid. See the Club Managers Association of America for examples of internships.
