Affairs Today
About the company:

Affairs Today is a global student media outlet with an initial focus on global business and politics, destined for anyone interested in or curious about such affairs. Over the course of the journal’s life, Affairs Today has expanded to include interviews, lifestyle, travel, career, and top tips articles. The journal was founded in February 2013 in Glasgow, where we remain headquartered; however, we have staff around the world, with a leadership team housed in over 3 countries. Our primary aim is to bring a student point of view to top business and politics news in order to share those perspectives with fellow students and the greater world. Today, Affairs Today has a 42-member team and includes people from around the world. We are always growing. If you are interested in working with us, please visit our Write for Us page. We’d love to hear from you.
