CORNWALL - Students from St. Lawrence College’s Supply Chain Management program found success at the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) 2018 Student Case Competition, placing 2nd overall of 28 colleges and university teams from across Canada.

Supply Chain Management students Chris Anderson, Doug Cox, Thatchayini Mahalingam, and Mike Sokolowski represented St. Lawrence College at the competition, which took place on February 24, 2018.

Working in their teams, the students explored a scenario pertaining to a supply chain problem. The teams developed recommendations based on their research, data analysis, and study of financial implications, and presented their solution to a panel of industry and academic judges.

The case competition allowed students to enhance their academic skills by applying concepts, tools and techniques of supply chain and operations to solving a real world business problem.

In preparation for the competition, the students met to practice and solve case studies in a voluntary four-hour class each week, provided by program coordinator Carla Kingston-Floyd.

“It was a pleasure to be selected to represent the Supply Chain Management program at St. Lawrence College at the National SCMA conference. The opportunity to demonstrate the skills we have learned in the classroom in a real-world situation was invaluable. We could not be happier with our results,” said Mike Sokolowski.

“This was a great experience to apply the knowledge we have learned from the Supply Chain Management program here at St. Lawrence College. The amount of work and preparation put into this by our team really paid off,” said Chris Anderson. “I’d like to thank Carla Kingston for providing our team with the support and guidance which led to our success.”

The Supply Chain Management program is a one-year Graduate Certificate program offered on St. Lawrence College's Cornwall campus.
