What is the case about?

During the competition, students will analyze critical supply chain parameters through a case study, providing the scenario and some background details with quantitative data for the analysis. 

Working in their teams, the students will explore a scenario pertaining to a supply chain problem. The teams will develop recommendations based on their research, data analysis and study of financial implications. A panel of industry and academic judges will adjudicate the presentations.

How will the case be judged?

A marking rubric has been established to provide a fair and equitable evaluation. Students will submit their presentation and be called in front of a panel of three judges to present their solution.

The following components will be evaluated:

  • Case solution
  • Presentation
  • Originality / Critical Thinking

What are the rules?
