Numerous museums, theatres, sport and recreational facilities, a lively pub and cultural scene and, of course, a passion for football that is unrivalled: Dortmund has a lot to offer students. As an important centre of business and science, the city is also an excellent place to launch a career.
These days, the largest share of economic activity in Dortmund is in the service sector. This covers services like banking and insurance, IT and commerce. Structural changes in the Ruhr region are also driving expansion in the tourism sector: with approx. 1.1 overnight visitors each year, Dortmund ranks as second in the Ruhr region. On top of that, each year 1.5 million visitors attend exhibitions, congresses and concerts in the Halls of Westphalia, a multi-purpose venue. The city thus offers great opportunities for starting a career in the tourism and marketing sector. Numerous social service facilities in the city also provide professional opportunities for future graduates of the dual studies degree programme in social work.
