Isenberg Student Teams Win APICS Case Competition
February 4, 2013
Student teams from Isenberg's Operations & Information Management (OIM) department have placed first and second in a northeast regional case study competition hosted by APICS: the Association for Operations Management. The team of Kayla Brady '15, Bill Bebrin '13, Matt McDonald '13, and Nolan Turner '13 won first place in both the Graduate and Undergraduate categories. Another Isenberg team--comprising Win Hang Lau '13, Brian Heacox '14, and Abhishek Chandra '14--took second place honors.
In the competition, held in Albany on February 1 and 2, teams from colleges and universities in the northeast tackled a complex supply chain problem. A panel of judges--senior managers from leading companies in New England and New York--evaluated the teams' solutions. The first-place team from Isenberg will advance to the next round of the competition at the APICS International Conference & Expo in Orlando on September 29-October 1.
Other Isenberg OIM students who competed in Albany were Cami Chen '13, Juliana Cirillo '13, Seth Foster '13, Alex Moody '13, Jinfeng Chen 14, Kenny Deng '14, Laura Irwin '14 Aneesh Jain '14, Jenny Sargeant '14 and Cara McInnes '15. Isenberg's APICS student chapter has fifty active student members, who benefit from the parent organization's extensive professional development opportunities, including in-depth contact industry practitioners, many of whom are Isenberg alumni.
