Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) Student Case Competition

Students from SLC’s Supply Chain Management program have had the opportunity to participate in the SCMA Student Case Competition for several years. Working in a team, students explore a scenario pertaining to a supply chain problem. The teams develop recommendations based on their research, data analysis, and study of financial implications, and present their solution to a panel of industry and academic judges. The case competition allows students to enhance their academic skills by applying concepts, tools and techniques of supply chain and operations to solving a real world business problem.

    My decision to enroll in the Logistics and Supply Chain Management program at St. Lawrence was the best decision I ever made. As a newcomer to the city of Cornwall and to Canada, I didn't find myself lonely since I had extremely friendly instructors, they helped me overcome the challenges that I had (academic and personal). St. Lawrence College staff have become like family that provided me with assistance in all different aspects. St. Lawrence is the only college that provides you real field work placement which is a great step to practice what we've learned and to make connections with business managers as a first step in achieving your dream career. On top of that the lovely city of Cornwall is a perfect place to learn about logistics and supply chain management as it functions as a hub centre for eastern Ontario. It also has a nice weather, amazing landscapes and very friendly people. My experience at St. Lawrence college was outstanding, I really enjoyed my time.
