 What is the Student Case Competition?

Teams of students are given a supply chain problem to be solved using a computer simulation game. 
Teams will develop and execute their solutions in the simulation. All Teams will present to a Panel 
of Judges on their rationale for the decisions and their learning through the simulation experience. 

This is a great opportunity for Students to utilize skills and demonstrate concepts learned, in a competitive, fun and supportive environment. Prizes include $3600 in cash prices at the competition plus a trip for the winning Team to go to Washington, DC to attend and compete at the 2016 APICS International Conference.

Information and registration available here.

Who is eligible to compete? 
Any full-time or part-time university student. There are two competition divisions: undergraduate and graduate. Teams must be made up of 3-4 students. 


NEW 2016 International CSCP and CPIM exam windows

In response to inquiries regarding the availability of exam windows, APICS conducted a survey with channel, international and corporate partners. The goal was to gain insight into partner training schedules and candidate testing behaviors to ensure that the exam windows fit the needs of our partners and candidates.

We are pleased to announce, as a result of the feedback, it was determined that changes should be made beginning in 2016 for both the international and North America exam windows.   More here:
