Our roots date back 1889, when Päivälehti, a Helsinki-based daily paper was founded. Nowadays Sanoma is the leading consumer media company in Finland. In 1999 Sanoma acquired WSOY and this was the start in educational publishing. From there we build the leading K12 learning company in Europe through acquisitions in the past 20 years. We have learning businesses in twelve European countries and Learning nowadays represents close to 70% of the total contribution of the business. Sanoma employs more than 5,000 professionals in Europe.

We are a front running multi-channel media and a growing learning company that aims to lead the industry development.
