Seneca students from the Purchasing and Supply Management and the Global Logistics programs placed first and second in a Case Study Competition held by the Canadian District of the Association for Operations Management (APICS).
Two Seneca teams competed with colleges across Ontario in this two-day event. During the competition, all of the teams were given cases to study in the evening. They worked through the night and the following day presented their proposals to a panel of judges.
Finishing in first place were Rubin Varghese, Dante Carlos, Kate Marynych, Mohammad Manji and Qionying Zhu, who will go on to represent Seneca and Canada at the International APICS Case Competition in the fall. Claiming second place were Olena Arutiunova, Glib Baraban, Dilshan Abdul-Kayoom, Stephanie Tang and Nancy Tian. Coaching the students throughout the competition was their Professor Mary Drane.
