Seneca students impress at international case study competition
Five Seneca students from the Purchasing and Supply Management and Global Logistics programs captured third place in the Association for Operations Management (APICS) International Student Team Competition.
Over the course of three days, the Seneca team of Rubin Varghese, Dante Carlos, Kate Marynych, Dilshan Abdul-Kayoom and Stephanie Tang went head-to-head against MBA students from five U.S. universities in several rounds of a computer simulated case competition.
In fact, Seneca was the only Canadian postsecondary institution to take part in this contest and finished ahead of teams from the University of Houston, the University of Massachusetts Amherst and St. Cloud State University.
The College's team qualified for the event after winning the APICS Canadian District Case Competition back in March.
For finishing in third, the students won $1,000 and spent the week in Orlando, Florida, where the competition was held.
