What do Student’s say about the event?

 

 

The APICS Northeast District Student Competition was a fantastic experience.  I’ll never forget how much fun my team had working on the case. 

It was challenging and allowed for our team to practice our analytic skills and apply concepts learned in and outside of class. It was an enjoyable 

event and made the hard work entirely worth it.

"Before last winter I had never been in a leadership position however, in December, I signed up for the Northeast District APICS Student competition 

because it sounded interesting, and quickly realized that if I didn’t take charge, nobody would. I volunteered to be the team captain in order to register us. 

I directed my team throughout the competition, organizing priorities, assigning tasks, and eventually leading us to a second place victory."

Learning through the experience of working with the APICS Northeast District Student Competitions has helped me propel myself towards reaching my career goals.

 Working with a team to solve complex business problems has introduced me to new challenges, sparked new interests, and has brought me a realm of new professional network connections — This opportunity has truthfully been like no other.

I've competed in the APICS Northeast District Student Competition for two years in a row and it has proven an incredible experience each time. The opportunity

 to compete against other Universities for National recognition grants the students unparalleled motivation to solve today's global operations and supply chain challenges.
