Kimmo Kuortti

This is a job-share with Herwig Dämon.

I am Kimmo Kuortti, Head of Global Education Solutions at Oulu University of Applied Sciences, where I oversee the programme development, sales and marketing of educational products. In my career, I have managed European programmes, directed an international office and run student recruitment. I have developed service concepts, overseen implementation of strategic projects and participated in several national and international projects and coordinating bodies. I value a research-driven approach to work and I carry out research on globalisation and education exports. I like to share my experience: I have carried out training for the DAAD and the National Board of Education of Finland, and I have been a speaker at several EAIE annual conferences. I have served for a period in the Marketing and Recruitment Steering group and it has been a formative experience. I would now like to contribute further to the Expert Community, its goals and its values – together with my job-share, Herwig Dämon – by helping develop future leaders in marketing and recruitment. Herwig and I are committed to involving more members from less represented countries in Marketing and Recruitment to increase the potential for learning from each other and to ensure inspiring diversity.
