Adriana Pérez-Encinas

My name is Adriana Pérez-Encinas. I am a lecturer and researcher in business organisations and internationalisation of higher education at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.  

I have been involved in the EAIE for more than six years, including being part of the Mobility Advising Expert Community. My international journey started more than 15 years ago, first as an exchange student, then as an Erasmus Student Network volunteer and later as head of the International Relations Office in the business and economics faculty at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, where I was constantly in contact with local and international students, university partners and colleagues from all over the world.  

In 2017, I defended my PhD on strategies for welcoming international students and on formal and informal support services in higher education. I continue to be highly interested in and passionate about internationalisation of higher education institutions. I therefore put forward my candidature for the EAIE General Council. I believe that my expertise makes me a good candidate for the role.
