According to the 7th edition of PMI’s Project Management Salary Survey 2015, which polled over 26,000 project managers from 34 different countries, the median salary for a Project Management Practitioner in Germany was 78.000 € (USD 87,245).

“Certifications such as PMI’s globally-recognized Project Management Professional (PMP)® provide a significant advantage regarding salary and earning potential. For example, among survey respondents, those with a PMP certification garner a higher salary (20% higher on average)than those without a PMP certification.”
