The Student Case Competition hosted by SCMA™ offers an excellent opportunity to show your corporate support of the student community and to help develop tomorrow's leader today. By doing so, you have a unique opportunity to promote your business, its people, products, and services to select groups of individuals from across Canada.
The Student Case Competition
The Student Case Competition is a one-day annual event, during which student teams will be given a real world strategic and tactical challenge to solve. They may examine topics such as logistics network design, relationship management or sustainability. Working in their teams, the students will explore a scenario pertaining to a supply chain problem provided by a Canadian company; we do not use standard cases. The teams will develop recommendations based on their research, data analysis, and study of financial implications. A panel of industry professionals and academics will adjudicate the presentations.
Your organization will have great exposure and access to a collection of bright and ambitious students, professors, and industry professionals. Your organization's logo will be on the promotional material of an annual event that has already generated a high level of interest and attention. Lastly, your company will be in a select group of supporters, as case competition sponsorship is limited.
Your company will be associated with the tier 1 universities across the country, which are our competition hosts:
- Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary (Alberta)
- Ron Joyce Centre, DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University (Ontario)
- Sobeys School of Business, Saint Mary's University (Nova Scotia)
The competition will be promoted in colleges and universities across the country through our academic contacts (100+) and student clubs (35+). We will also leverage industry magazines Canadian Shipper, MM&D, and PurchasingB2B, along with SCMA’s regular communications to its 7,500 members.
On the day of the competition, we expect to have between 20 and 30 teams of four students participating at the two host locations.
Along with the student contact, you will meet fellow business people in a unique setting and share viewpoints on current supply chain issues. Get feedback on those issues which are most pertinent in today's competitive business environment.
Meet Talented Future Leaders
Through the marketing campaign, your company will be exposed to supply chain and business management students across the country. At the event, you will meet some of the most talented future business leaders. As a sponsor you will be able to see students leveraging their creative problem-solving tools to deliver a compelling presentation surrounding a complex issue. Don't miss this valuable opportunity to network with top performers.
