40 years of commitment to quality in Swiss journalism

In 1974, publisher Hans Ringier founded Switzerland’s first School of Journalism. This pioneering act called for a special location for the school, so the publisher put his family home at the disposal of the new institution. In the years since, 335 journalists have received their training at the «Villa Römerhalde». 

«I'd follow my CEO on Twitter»

Whenever Marc Walder returns from New York there´s a shake-up at Ringier Pressehaus. His most recent trip inspired a new five-point plan. In this interview Ringier’s CEO talks about its implementation and reveals his investment plans for 2015.

Atrocities run riot on the web

The terrorist organization «Islamic State» (IS) intends to establish a caliphate in the Middle East through inhuman violence – and state-of-the-art propaganda that is simple and clear, terrifying and up to date. IS uses Twitter and Facebook and aims to win Muslims around the globe over to its «holy war».
