Industrial Technology and Management

Association of Supply Chain Management, Chicago Chapter

The Illinois Institute of Technology Association of Supply Chain Management (ASCM) student chapter, in collaboration with the national organization, strives to bridge the gap between industry and academia through on-campus seminars, lectures, and workshops, as well as offsite national student competitions and facility tours.

A highlight of Illinois Tech’s partnership with ASCM is the annual Chicago Case Competition, in which teams from different universities present case solutions to a panel of industry judges. The case studies illustrate how industry and business professionals plan for the future, and teams look at questions such as: When does the future start? What will the future look like? What preparations should be made? When should those preparations be implemented?
