Three industrial engineering and management students from Oklahoma State University won first place in a recent Student Case Study Competition in Oklahoma City, receiving the first perfect score in the four years of the contest, which is sponsored by the Oklahoma City chapter of APICS, an association for supply chain and operations management.
The first place team, which included Swaraj Meher, Kunal Bhosale and Kartik Josyula, showcased their skills for potential employers and won a $500 cash prize in the competition, which also serves as a networking opportunity for students.
“Swaraj, Kunal and Kartik worked very well together in making their presentation, and their answers to the judging panel’s questions were outstanding,” said Larry Chadwick, vice president of information for the APICS Oklahoma City chapter. “They’ve set a great precedent for future team competitions, and we hope OSU will continue to participate next year.”
A team from the University of Oklahoma placed second in the competition, followed by a team from the University of Central Oklahoma.
