Miia MacDougallProfile shot of Woman on pink background,

Senior Alumni Relations Manager

I have spent the last 20 years working in higher education in a variety of roles from coordinating UK study abroad programmes for American University students to building global alumni networks. Prior to joining Edinburgh Napier in 2019 I worked at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business as Senior Associate Director for Alumni Relations creating lifelong engagement opportunities for Business School alumni in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and beyond. I am passionate about building alumni networks and connecting communities that support the student experience and advance alumni careers. 

I am a native of Finland but have called the UK home for nearly 20 years now. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Hospitality Management from JAMK University of Applied Sciences in Finland.


My favourite thing to do in Edinburgh is… to climb up the Pentland Hills to enjoy the breath-taking views of the Edinburgh city skyline.

Alumni Relations and Communications Coordinator

I am a double Edinburgh Napier University alumnus. I started off at Edinburgh Napier in 2016 with a BA(Hons) Languages and Intercultural Communication and topped it up with a Msc in Marketing with Digital Strategy, graduating in autumn 2021. I then came back to university as a member of staff in March 2022. Before that, when I wasn’t studying for my degree, I was working in hospitality or in social media marketing for an LGBT+ business networking company.

My favourite thing to do in Edinburgh is... having a cold drink in the meadows on a rare sunny day!
