Robert Buttery

My name is Robert Buttery. I am Head of International Relations at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. I am standing for the General Council with a proven track record of success in our field. 

I have been an active contributor to the EAIE for over 15 years through my involvement in the General Council, as Chair and long-standing member of the Business Education Expert Community and as an annual conference session speaker. I have also worked in direct collaboration with all Expert Communities and Task Forces. I am active on various national and international education committees, and I am a senior lecturer in management and international studies.  

After a two-year break to focus on university projects during the pandemic, I intend to resume a leading role within the EAIE by applying my many years of experience and expertise at General Council level. If elected, I will: 

• Strengthen the EAIE’s role as a driving force within international education 

• Represent and promote the interests of all EAIE members  

• Increase outreach to the wider international education community  

• Be a relentless advocate for sustainable and inclusive education 

• Ensure that the General Council’s mandate to maintain transparency and accountability is applied
