University Loyola Andalucia, Spain
Francisco de Borja Martin Garrido

My name is Francisco de Borja Martín Garrido (friends call me Borja) and I am Director of International Relations at Universidad Loyola Andalucía. I contributed to the founding process of this first private non-profit university in southern Spain, and I direct and facilitate global strategic partnerships.  

I am also on the steering committee of the International Association of Jesuit Universities, Erasmus+ Coordinator at Loyola and a collaborator in SEPIE, the Erasmus+ Study in Spain agency. I spent eight years working in international trade at Williams and Humbert, after studying business administration and law and completing an executive MBA and a PhD. 

I have been an elected member of the EAIE Conference Programme Committee for six years, helping to coordinate all academic programmes since EAIE Seville 2017. I believe my extensive knowledge of international higher education and my comprehensive experience in the EAIE can contribute to the General Council and help the EAIE progress as the voice of higher education professionals in Europe.  

We must develop education as an instrument for social transformation for the common good. It would be an honour to use my knowledge and skills to serve the EAIE in this capacity. The world is our home.
