On Friday, February 21, undergraduate students competed in teams of four to resolve real-world strategic and tactical challenges through the examination of topics such as logistics, network design, procurement, relationship management, and sustainability. The competitors were all enrolled in a supply chain or business administration program in a Canadian college or university. The teams studied a business case and presented their solutions to a panel of judges consisting of business professionals, academics and corporate sponsors.
Congratulations to University of British Columbia. Team members Sewen Chan, Angus Chak, Daniel Medinas and Eva Ko won the judges over with their clear and concise presentation rationalizing a workable solution for truck routing and warehousing.
The second place team from the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary included Olivia Smith, Daniel Hurtado, Angela Ryu and Kiran Bal.
The third place team from HEC Montreal included Audray Langlois, Alix Goument, Catherine Vincent and Mathieu Laflamme.
Well done, all teams, for your innovative efforts. Your hard work, determination and creative vision will take you far in your professional careers.
