On Saturday, February 28, 2015, 22 teams of undergraduate students competed at the SCMA Student Case Competition, sponsored by Purolator Logistics. The competitors were all enrolled in a supply chain or business administration program at a Canadian college or university, and they worked hard to resolve real-world strategic and tactical challenges through the examination of topics such as logistics, network design, procurement, relationship management, and sustainability.
We congratulate HEC Montréal team members Catherine Harnois, Han-Li Tremblay, Diane Gabla & Zéfira Diallo on taking first place. The second place team from the University of Saskatchewan included Chris Chovin, Ryan Krug, Angelica Laliberte and Kenny Pillipow. The third place team from Seneca College included Desiree Fong, Kalisfeena Teemofena, Rocio Gainza and Denis Lopel. Well done, all teams! Your innovative efforts, hard work, determination and creative vision will take you far in your professional careers.
The purpose of the competition is to provide a unique learning opportunity for undergraduate students, while raising awareness of the areas of supply chain management as both a field of study and as a potential career path. This event matches some of the best and brightest supply chain students from around the country where they compete against each other and showcase their talents to some of the industry's top firms.
