Joanna Kumpula

My name is Joanna Kumpula and I have been working in international higher education now for 19 years. I’m Head of International Education and Integration Support at Tampere University in Finland. Our team works in the fields of student and staff mobility, transnational education and international student recruitment and support services.  

I previously worked in several positions in international student marketing, recruitment and admissions in the university sector. I was also Marketing Manager for the Study in Finland brand and I have managed my own university consulting agency. 

I started my volunteer work in the EAIE with the Marketing and Recruitment Expert Community and have also been a trainer in many EAIE workshops. I believe that my wide experience in different roles within the international higher education field, combined with my years in the EAIE, gives me a good position from which to work effectively within the General Council for a second term.  

I’m very familiar with the growing challenges that we are facing in international education, from the economic to the political and environmental, and I’d be honoured to use my skill set and experience to serve the EAIE in tackling these issues.
