2015 Student Case Competition

The APICS Mid Atlantic District hosted its sixth annual student case competition in Pittsburgh on February 20 and 21, 2015. Using the “Fresh Connection” web-based value chain simulation, 16 teams composed of 73 students competed in the January-February virtual preliminary rounds. The Fresh Connection has been experienced by more 10,000 professionals in 500 companies and in over 100 universities across the world.

The final round included the top six teams presenting to the volunteer leaders during the Mid Atlantic district meeting. Congratulations to Temple University for winning the competition. The team will be representing the Mid Atlantic District in Las Vegas at the APICS 2015 International Student Case Competition in October. Bowling Green State University took second place and University of Toledo won third place.
