Wirtschaftswoche is Germany's only financial weekly newspaper and is compulsory reading in the stock exchanges in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. It started life in 1926 as Der deutsche Volkswirt. As well as news stories it has made a name for itself by publishing rankings of for example universities and cities, and organising business awards and competitions. In 2015, under its editor-in-chief, Miriam Meckel, the newspaper distanced itself from its previously eurosceptic course and even initiated an EU image campaign.
