Apics Case Competition
Apics Student Case Competitions are based on real business cases with specific operation or supply chain problems.
Cases are designed to encourage students to solve real-world situations using textbook knowledge, and to foster student involvement in district and professional chapter activities.
In Feb 2015, Apics Penn State Chapter participated in Mid-Atlantic District (MAD) Case Competition, and was able to get to the final round. They worked in teams of four, each represented a function in business including sales, purchasing, supply chain and operations. The challenge for them was to make strategic decisions to increase a fruit juice manufacturing company's ROI.
The participation is free of charge, and all travel and lodging expenses will be covered by Apics and Smeal College of Business.
