We are a journalism incubator for students to report on global business and economics stories, trends and phenomena shaping our society today.

From Classroom to Newsroom: The Student Reporter Conference Coverage

Journalism is a tool to build context and community around complex, politically charged subjects through meaningful stories.

By immersing in the practice and ethics of journalism, our students push beyond the walls of the classroom. We enable these future leaders to critically shape their desire to influence global debates.

Our online media outlet is an experimental newsroom.

We work with conference bodies and mission-driven organizations for investigative topic and event projects all around the world, covering global meetings and niche, in-depth workshops.

Our management and editorial team works to develop students who come from various backgrounds and disciplines – humanities, economics, or engineering, to name a few – but have in common a passion for using journalism to delve into issues and topics that they are passionate about.
