The experience of GSCMI 2013 case competition
I would first like to take this opportunity to congratulate the GSCMI team for hosting a very memorable conference. I would like to especially thank Dr. George Shanthikumar, Dr. Annabelle Feng, and the other faculty members for providing the students with an excellent platform to learn, develop, and showcase their talent and knowledge in the presence of leading practitioners from the industry.
The supply chain case competition not only provided the participants an opportunity to learn the intricacies of supply chain management, but also allowed the participants to understand the dynamics of team work and discipline. From selecting team members to presenting in the finals, I learned so much and was able to implement lessons from the various courses of the MBA as well. The competition was fierce with several other teams having members with prior experiences of winning case competitions.
The Case competition was followed by the supply chain conference which was a very unique opportunity to learn the latest technologies and processes being followed in the industry. Interacting with industry experts gave all the participants a great platform to network.
Lastly, I would like to thank GSCMI again for hosting such a great event and for providing such a memorable experience for all the participants.
