Gordana Mijuk, 48, has been working for the NZZ titles since 2006, initially as an editor in the Zurich department of the daily edition. In 2010, she switched to the NZZ on Sundaywhere she wrote for Hintergrund-Bund and took over as head of the foreign desk in 2017. She began her journalistic career at the Associated Press news agency in Bern and Zurich before moving to the business desk of the Aargauer newspaper switched. She graduated from the University of Zurich in German Studies, Philosophy and History and holds an Executive MBA.
