Leisure Management, the German Leisure Management, is one of these new, trendy courses that have crossed my mind lately - and are hardly known in Germany so far. The name sounds exciting for people who want to make their hobby a profession. But where can you study something like this and what does a leisure manager actually do exactly? In Montréal I had the opportunity to meet you.

How to become a leisure manager?

Overview

Jérémie Gabourg is Leisure and Media Manager at Tourism Montréal and is responsible for the tourism marketing of his city. He organizes tours for tour operators or travel agents and journalists and ensures that these multipliers have the most positive impression of the city. What did he study and how did he get to this job?

Originally from Martinique, Jérémie moved to Paris with his family as a child. With 18 he came to study in Montral - and just stayed there. "I like the open mindset of people," he says, explaining that Montréal, as a classic immigration city, is very cosmopolitan: "There are not only English and French, but also Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Creole language groups. And there's that certain savor vivre, a certain serenity in the lifestyle "

At the same time, the economy is much stronger than in France, so the career opportunities are much better. "This mix has convinced me, so I've renewed my stay every year - now it's been 12 years," he laughs.

What to study?

Overview

He came across his choice of study rather by chance - that connects many other freshmen, who, given the many possibilities also do not know what to study. Even Jérémie originally had only the meaning of what he knew: "I wanted to study translation first, but had at the Casting specified as a second choice management with a focus on tourism. "

But when he applied, he made a mistake: "The McGill University, the application I did not offer translation at all." As the McGill but one of the top international universities (currently ranked 18 in the World University Ranking), wanted Jérémie necessarily study here.

So he started a three-year Bachelor's degree course - and realized that he liked this subject very well.

The career advancement

Overview

After studying, Jérémie worked for three years at the French Tourist Office in Montréal, then for four years with a large airline and then switched to Tourism-Montréal.

But Jérémie keeps thinking: at the moment he is doing a post-graduate program with a focus on "Recreation" at the university. He wants, as he says, to remain professionally flexible and open up further career opportunities.

Flexible career opportunities

Overview

Jérémie learned a lot in his various jobs. The airline was a big company with thousands of employees "very exciting," he says. In his current job, however, there is a more familiar atmosphere that he likes better.

And otherwise Jérémie got to know quite different perspectives: "My job initially was to convince Canadians to go to France, today I convince Europeans to come here", he grins. "I now know both mentalities and points of view."

What does a leisure manager do in his spare time?

Overview

"What's easier?" I want to know "Convincing Europeans to come to Montréal is easier," says Jérémie after a brief thought. "Because Europeans like Montréal, it's like a little bit of Europe in North America," he says, looking at European-style downtown architecture.

"And what does a leisure manager do in his free time?" I finally ask. His answer makes it clear that Jérémie's job is marketing for the city:

For example, visit one of the numerous roof gardens, such as the one at the Hilton Hotel on 18. Floor of a skyscraper, cycling with the Bixi bike, a system where you can borrow a bike for half an hour. Or eat well in one of the many restaurants from different cultures, of which Boris Bistro is one of the best, as he tells me.

Where can I study Leisure Management?

Overview

According to the university compass, leisure management can only be studied in Germany a few times, such as leisure and tourism management at the Stralsund University of Applied Sciences. This shows how new this offer in Germany still is.

Anyone wishing to study this subject should therefore also take a look abroad: The subject can study in Dublin, the Zealand Institute in Denmark or at the Dutch FH Stenden.

The professionalization of the leisure area

Overview

That the language is almost everywhere English, even in Germany, should play no role in the international orientation of the course.

In other countries, the professionalization of this area is already much more advanced than in Germany.
