Hi Abishek,

If these are the only two options you are looking to apply for. I will suggest to go for Business course. But remember you need to have good German speaking skills in order to do good in Germany for both of these fields. If you’ve further questions let me know.

Hi MuzzamAli, So Sports Management is my preference. So I will just ask you some regarding Sports Management first,

1. Does Sports Management course have scope in Germany?
2. If I study Sports Management, it’ll be obvious that I work in the same field. Will I get enough opportunities?
3. I’ve gained experience of approx. 2 years in this field. Will it count?
4. After the 2 years course, will the University help me getting placed somewhere or I would have to search?

There are opportunities in all the fields. In sports management field, you’ll have the opportunities but you’ll have to work a bit more harder compared to other fields.

1. Yes, Bundesliga itself is a huge area. Apart from football they spend on hockey and other areas also.

2. Yes, it depends on how good your German is mainly to excel in this field.

3. Yes it will definitely count.

4. It depends on the University. But usually Universities tell their students how to apply and where to apply for jobs. Getting you a job is less likely. One option students usually go for is asking their professors directly if they have any jobs or know someone in the field to whom they can recommend you. But for that make sure the professor knows you’re a good student.

Hi, thank you so much. It was really helpful. Have heard a lot of myths about it. It is definitely getting a bit clear.

Also, there are some questions related to International Business,

1. Does International Business have more scope than Sports Management?
2. The course is in English at the Universities that I’m applying to, so would German language be a barrier when I get part-time work. Though I’m planning to complete my A2 German before coming there.
3. After the course, will we be able to get a job in Germany in the field of business or management or we would have to change?

Sorry for such silly questions. But these are some of the things that have been going through if you can help me with it. Also, do you still stay in Germany?

  1.  Business has certainly better paying jobs and more scope compared to Sports ( but that’s just my personal opinion ).
  2. German language will be a barrier once you are working full time as a professional. If you want to climb the corporate ladder you need to know german. Plus german language will be barrier based on the type of work you are doing. If it requires communication than definitely you need german.
  3. Your chances will be more if you speak german. German is important in business since it requires more communication and meetings are conducted in german.

Yes I live in Germany.

Let me know if you need any further info.

All the things were really helpful until now.  Being frank, my interest was Sports Management but looking at all the scenarios taking a risk for me is not something I want to choose.

So I’m planning to go with a course in International Business. I’m also learning German beforehand so that it can help me in the initial stage. Do you think International Business would be the right choice over Sports Management? I’ve around 2 years of experience, both in Marketing and the Sports field.

If there are any comments from your side, you can let me know. It would be helpful.

Do what you find more interesting. You’ll hopefully find job in both the fields, it depends at the end of the day how hard you work. In Germany, no one remains unemployed unless they really didn’t learn anything during their studies and just wasted their time.
