Calling all students!

Even if you’re not an APICS Scholar, we invite you to participate in APICS Scholars Program activities. As an APICS 2013 student attendee, you will have the opportunity to benefit from the guidance of a mentor and join APICS Scholars in the events we’ve created to celebrate you—the future of the profession.


As an APICS Scholar or student attendee, you’ve already shown tremendous initiative in your career. Now is the time to meet the supply chain and operations management professionals who can open doors for you. Whether you’re having lunch with your mentor and other APICS Scholars Education Program participants or student attendees, or attending a panel discussion featuring APICS community leaders, you will have the opportunity to network with industry decision makers who can help you find the path to career success.
