Ryo Shimada

Ryo has 10+ years’ experience at higher education (university) in Japan as Administrative Officer. Although the job title did not change at all, the expertise entails Finance, Administration, and Project management. This is because for the first 5 years Ryo was an accountant at the Finance Office and for the rest of years, he managed a wide range of projects from international mobility to construction to IT at the International Office.

Ryo quit his job in Japan to enroll in Executive MBA at University of Geneva. He is going to finish it by the end of June this year.

Ryo has just obtained PMP a few days ago for proof of project management skills and career advancement. The prime reason to join the chapter is to know how project managers and practitioners demonstrate project management knowledge in their day-to-day work. Additionally, knowing new people in Switzerland will expand his interest and knowledge personally and professionally.

Ryo is a big fan of snowboarding. This season he joined an organization called "Freeride World Tour» and competed two times in Vervier. Living in Geneva and enjoying mountain life is fantastic. In his daily life, Ryo often enjoy craft beer and coffee by brewing filter coffee by himself
