A Bachelor of Business in Club Management was introduced by Southern Cross University, Lismore, in 1993 to specifically meet the educational needs of the Australian club industry. It was a joint venture between the club industry, education organisations and tourism training agencies. An evaluation was conducted on this multi-level undergraduate degree course after the first fifteen graduates had exited from the Certificate level of the course.
