Introducing this year’s Marjorie Deane fellows at New York University: Marta Orosz

Marta Orosz

Before starting a Masters degree in Business & Economic Reporting at New York University Marta Orosz completed a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and English Language and Literature at Eötvös Loránt University Budapest, Hungary, in 2010. She relocated to Berlin, where she worked as a Germany correspondent for the Hungarian public service radio. In 2015, she started working for CORRECTIV, the first non-profit investigative newsroom in Germany. Her major investigations have included the planned EU – US trade deal TTIP; consequences of the parallel trade in medicine; sexual harassment at the biggest German public broadcaster; and environmental consequences of the waste-to-energy business in the cement industry. In her latest project, “Grand Theft Europe,” she coordinated 35 newsrooms across 30 countries reporting on the biggest ongoing tax fraud in Europe. She is interested in alternative story-telling methods including gamification and theater productions based on investigative stories. She is a dual citizen of Romania and Germany.
