Watch our helpful kickoff webinar for answers to some common questions:

Q: What is a student case competition?

A: Teams of students from participating schools receive a complex supply chain problem. Teams will develop and present solutions. Winning teams from the initial college/university round will have the chance to qualify for a regional competition, with regional winners advancing to a final competition at the ASCM annual conference.

Q: Who is eligible to compete?

A: Any full-time university or college student, 18 years or older, who is an ASCM member is eligible to compete. ASCM student membership is free. Both undergraduate and graduate students are allowed, from any academic discipline. Most students will have operations management, supply chain, industrial engineering, or an MBA academic background, but this is not a requirement.

Each team must have 4 members at registration and must maintain at least two members to advance through the rounds. There can only be up two winning teams per school.

Q: Why should you compete?

A: There are many great reasons to compete in the ASCM Case Competition. To name a few:

  • Participation in a best-in-class global event.
  • Engagement with the leading professional association for Supply Chain Management and a global leader in business operations consulting.
  • Real-world case problem solving, incorporating technical knowledge as well as ‘soft skills’.
  • Robust opportunities for mentorship, internships and networking.
  • The chance to earn prize money.
