"Supply Chain Trends and Opportunities"

Managers, capitalize on the ASCM OC training by encouraging and even financially supporting the student tuition. The benefits to the organization are “Take advantage of reimbursing for APICS courses taken on non-business hours that benefits the student with knowledge and the company gets the trained employees who have demonstrated their skills through Certification. That way the student gets the training the employer gets to offer a benefit that does not take away from the time of critically short staff in the supply chain and related areas.”

Student Competition
The ASCM competition was an amazing, challenging, and valuable learning experience. It provided a great opportunity for networking with students from other universities and with ASCM professionals. It also provided the ability for us to take what we have learned, and apply it to a real-world problem.
