CONGRATS to the following Supply Chain majors for winning 1st place in the APICS Student Case Competition this past weekend.  They competed against 11 schools with top supply chain programs and came out on top with the first place analysis and presentation!

Students’ Comments:

Christopher Cesta: This competition was such and amazing experience with some of the brightest students In the CBA. I am already entertaining the possibility of going back next year.

Courtney Ou: It was a great opportunity for the team to see how we stacked up against the competing schools. It was a great feeling to know that our faculty at the University of Akron has taught us such great concepts, problem solving methods, and real world applications that enabled us to obtain 1st place. The competition was a wonderful learning experience and a memory that I will always cherish! I'm honored to know that I am working with the best students and faculty in the Supply Chain Management area.
