Ryo Suzuki joined the Office of International Education in 2020. He was previously the Graduate Assistant to the Chancellor and worked at the University of Nebraska Foundation for community outreach and engagement. He is also an adjunct lecturer at the College of Business and Technology, where he teaches marketing.

He graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2016, and he also earned an MBA in Marketing from the University of Nebraska in 2019.

A native of Tokyo, Japan, he was an avid baseball player and enjoyed living in the city until he moved to Nebraska. Growing up in Tokyo, a city of 14 million people, he never thought he would go to college and never dreamed he would find himself in central Nebraska. As he says, “In 2012, I decided to look for a change in my life and left Tokyo to learn more about business at UNK, one of the finest institutions in the United States. This journey has not been easy, but it has been an extremely rewarding and exciting one.”

He is a lifetime member of Beta Gamma Sigma whose purpose is to encourage and honor academic excellence in the study of business and to foster professional excellence among the members. He is also a member of the US-Japan Council. He has volunteered in many capacities within the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce, and is a current Board Member of The World Theatre and Kearney Family YMCA.
