SLC students impress at SCMA Case Competition


St. Lawrence College students make an impression in Burlington at the 2017 Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) competition.

On February 25, 2017, Logistics and Supply Chain Management students Dave Mathers, Justin Mark, Qizhen Li and Brendan Boisvenue competed at the event in Burlington, Ontario against other college and university students from across Canada. Although they did not make it to the final round of competition, they received high praise for their “logical and sound solution” to a complicated real world situation.

“I would like to congratulate and thank these students for the tremendous amount of work they put into preparing for this event. They met with me weekly and solved numerous practice cases to ensure they were a well-prepared cohesive team.  Any organization would be lucky to hire any of these students. I would also like to extend my personal thanks to the Alumni Foundation and the Cornwall Campus Student Union for their very generous support of this event,” said Carla Kingston, Program Coordinator.

“The academic and professional experience of the instructors gave us the knowledge and practical application of industry tools and processes used every day in problem solving and risk mitigation to prepare us for the working world of logistics and supply chain management,” said Dave Mathers.

“I would like to thank St. Lawrence College for the amazing opportunity in competing in the SCMA competition as well as the Cornwall Student Union for helping to make it happen,” said Justin Mark.

“The SCMA competition was a unique experience to practice what we’ve learned over the program in a real-life scenario and within a professional team. I am truly grateful to my teacher Carla Kingston, who has been so supportive, accessible and gracious during the competition preparation. Our team wouldn’t have gotten this far without her,” said Qizhen Li

"The competition was an excellent, professionally enriching experience that provided a number of tools which greatly increased my own career development," said Brendan Boisvenue.

The Supply Chain Management Program is a one-year Graduate Certificate program offered on the Cornwall campus.
