For many successful athletes - especially outside of professional football - the question of how to secure a long-term livelihood after the end of the career is essentially. Therefore, many athletes already take courses or begin to study while still being active sportsmen. In our study "Kollege Spitzensportler" we actively dealt with this topic several years ago. This resulted in several projects and cooperations. For example, the WHU in cooperation with the foundation "Deutsche Sporthilfe" offers scholarships for former athletes in its full-time and part-time MBA program. The "SPOAC - Sports Business Academy by WHU" also offers the opportunity for further professional development, not only to the junior executives of the sports business, but also to former top athletes.
