Louise Stansfield is Senior Lecturer in Business Communication in Metropolia Business School of Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, Finland. Louise has seen the internationalisation of business schools in Finland from many angles over the past 20 years, from being a one-person international office back in the 1990s to being Manager and Study Coordinator for international double degree programmes at undergraduate level. Having undergone two mergers in three years, Louise decided in the last one to return to full-time lecturing but still works closely with internationalisation, overseas partners, internships and alumni. Louise has been a member of the EAIE since the 1990s and has been active with the EAIE Professional Section Economics and Business Studies (EBS) Board from 2003. Louise was also active in the Professional Development Committee (PDC) starting in 2008, and was Chair of the PDC from 2011-2013. Louise is British by birth, but has lived in Finland for 26 years and speaks Finnish.
