Arizona State University’s Supply Chain Management Association is excited to host the Fall Series of the Annual Local Undergraduate Supply Chain & Operations Case Competition. We are excited to be working alongside with this year’s sponsors; size 15 bold.
The purpose of the competition is to provide a profound learning and networking experience for undergraduate students at ASU that will promote the field and career path of supply chain and operations management by turning academic theory into practice.
WHERE AND WHEN WILL THE LOCAL CASE COMPETITION BE HELD?
The competition will begin with case handouts at the Case Competition Kick Off event on Monday Oct ##th at 4:30PM and students will have the duration of the week to work on case. Presentations will be on Sat Oct ##th, as well as the Awards Ceremony. Throughout the week, three Speaker Series events* will be held by our sponsors, in addition to a Q&A Session by our host sponsor, (host name) on Wednesday October ##th (TIME TBD).
WHAT ARE THE EXPENSES?
There is a $10 registration deposit per team that will be refunded following completion of the competition. This is to avoid last-minute cancellations and to ensure that registration spots are reserved with serious intent to compete. Food will be catered and paid for by SCMA.
WHEN DO MY TEAM MEMBERS AND I NEED TO BE AVAILABLE?
Each team must participate at the Case Comp Kick Off on Monday October ##th, 4:30 PM (MST). In addition, all team members must be present on Saturday October ##th at the beginning for Opening Ceremony at 9:30 AM (MST) and for your specific presentation time; as well as at the finalist presentation and Awards Ceremony the same day.
Participants will also have the opportunity to attend three Speaker Series events hosted by our various sponsors in which company representatives will speak about (their company’s supply chain, COVID-19 response), and more. All three of the Speaker Series events are optional but a great opportunity to network with company representatives and ask them questions about the case!!!
