Business Management Institute (BMI)  Courses are at the core of the "lifetime professional development program" established by the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA), and constitute a mulit-campus-based program that provides tangible career benchmarks for managers to track their progress and strive for various levels of competency.  The program was initially established in 1988 at Georgia State University and now includes multiple programs held at the most renowned hospitality schools in the United States.

CSCM offers the following core BMI programs in partnership with the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University.  These Canadian programs are offered once per year on a rotating basis in the months of January-February.  Those pursuing their CCM designation are required to complete the first three courses plus either BMI Food & Beverage Management or BMI Golf Management.

  • BMI Club Management (formerly BMI I)
  • BMI Leadership Principles (formerly BMI II)
  • BMI General Manager/Chief Operating Officer (formerly BMI III)
  • BMI Food & Beverage  Management
  • BMI Golf Management (currently offered only in the US)

 BMI General Manager/Chief Operating Officer is offered in Toronto January 27 - February 1, 2018. 

The following BMI programs are available through CMAA throughout the year in addition to the above:
