Welcome to the National Undergraduate Supply Chain and Operations Case Competition Fall Series!
November 8-11, 2017
The Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) at Arizona State University is proud to announce that it will once again be hosting the Fall Series of the 5th Annual National Undergraduate Supply Chain & Operations Case Competition. The competition is an opportunity for students from all around the country to study more about the practical applications of supply chain management by working together to propose innovative solutions to complex, real world problems, which will be reviewed and evaluated by professionals from a variety of industries.
Business students from some of the most highly ranked supply chain programs in the United States come together to share in a profound learning and networking experience that ultimately promotes the field and career path of supply chain and operations management by turning academic theory into practice. We hope that you will join us in this venture to bring educational value to students who are eager to go beyond the limits of the classroom and test their knowledge in the competitive arena of the National Case Competition.
The 5th Annual National Undergraduate Supply Chain and Operations Case Competition – Fall Series will be held from Wednesday, November 8th to Saturday, November 11th 2017 at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.
The food and transportation expenses will be covered by the ASU-SCMA (except for Thursday dinner). The non-covered expenses will be the flight tickets, hotels, and the registration fee of $500. We have arranged a discount rate for the hotel rooms with one local hotel.
Over the past four years we have been honored to partner with companies such as Starbucks, Intel, Cisco, Dell, C.H. Robinson, PetSmart, JCPenny, Amazon, Oracle, CSCMP, RBC Bearings, Henkel, CR Bard and many more. We are currently looking for dedicated companies to join us in putting on another successful case competition.
