As part of this effort, we are proud to partner with the Eastern Michigan University Student APICS Chapter and celebrate their efforts to maintain platinum status as an APICS Student Chapter for 33 years!

The APICS Student Chapter Management and Recognition Program offers student chapters practical guidance from the diverse resources of parent chapters. As part of the lasting relationships created, parent chapters provide comprehensive instruction on administration, education, membership, public relations, and APICS programs.

Specifically, incoming student chapter leaders receive guidance on sound chapter management and instruction on benchmark processes and activities.

In recognition of achievement, student chapters earn Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum awards and a monetary award. The chapters are recognized on the APICS Web site.

Another great opportunity for supply chain students is the ASCM Case Competition, in collaboration with Deloitte. The 2020 ASCM Case Competition registration is OPEN through October 31st. Participating student teams will present solutions to an exciting end-to-end supply chain management problem, as they compete for prize money and recognition. The case may involve distribution, logistics, sales and operations planning, inventory, and other operations management challenges.

ASCM is proud of a rich tradition of student team case competitions. The program began as a grassroots event, with many APICS chapters, colleges and universities taking part. Over the years, the Case Competition has evolved into a flagship event touching students at universities across Africa, Asia, Europe, and both North and South America.
