The Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) is proud to announce the eighth annual Student Case Competition!

The Student Case Competition is a one-day annual event being held on Saturday, February 23, 2019, during which student teams will be given a real world strategic and tactical challenge to solve. The purpose of the competition is to provide a unique learning opportunity for post-secondary students while raising awareness of the areas of supply chain management as both a field of study and as a potential career path. Students 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.  The teams will develop recommendations based on their research, data analysis, and study of financial implications.
