      Hi there are many universities accept applications from international students with a minimum 50% marks in their bachelor’s degree to pursue a master’s degree in Germany.

      But a very few offer a master’s degree in journalism and therefore it depends on the number of applications they receive per semester as they go with the best marks holding applicants.
      But I think you may consider German private universities.

      Hello, Siddhant. German public universities consider only a bachelor’s degree while processing an international student’s application for a Master’s degree program.

      The marks obtained in B.Com perfectly match the academic requirements for a place to attend an MBA in German medium.

      Sometimes 70% and above could qualify for a place in the MBA, but it depends on the number of applications with better marks received by the university from students from India for the intake you apply. For example, for a 2 to a maximum of 4 places kept for students from India, if there are 4-5 applicants with above 70% marks, the 2-4 places available will be allotted to them. I hope you understand.
