Overview | Careers

The undergraduate certificate in Club Management provides a focused curriculum on those managerial competencies deemed important to private club managers of the 21st Century. These managerial competencies include: golf, spa, tennis, aquatics, food and beverage, marketing, human resources and leadership. The private country club industry is one of the highest-paying hospitality niche professions in Florida offering great employment opportunities. The sheer number of private clubs (over 125 clubs in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade) make the region very strong in club management. The certificate is particularly valuable for FAU degree-seeking students outside the College of Business and to community members, hospitality industry professionals and seasonal residents.


The global club industry includes clubs of many styles, sizes and varities. Some examples include: city clubs, fitness clubs, university clubs, military clubs, fraternal clubs, and social or community country clubs. Many jobs in this area are found in lifestyle country clubs. In the United States there are approximately 5,500 community clubs.

These facilities offer positions in food and beverage, guest relations, spa, fitness, retail, golf, tennis, aquatics, membership, communications, operations, security, and beyond. The best organization to affiliate with is the Club Management Association of America (CMAA). They have both student and professional memberships available. And, they have a large number of career resources available to their members. Please visit for further information.
