For many years, Wirtschaftswoche was published weekly[1][2] on Thursdays, but since March 2006, this has been changed to Mondays. The editorial office is in Düsseldorf. The publisher is Verlagsgruppe Handelsblatt[1] which also publishes Handelsblatt.[3]

The magazine provides business- and economy-related news.[2] Its target audience is managers and business people.[2][4] In November 2014 Miriam Meckel was appointed editor-in-chief of the weekly.[5] Under the leadership of Miriam Meckel, WirtschaftsWoche has gone through a major structural as well as design relaunch with edition 20/2015.
