Wayne State University supply chain students win 2021 Kelley School of Business case competition

A team of global supply chain management students from the Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University was named champion of the second annual Gregg Sherrill Manufacturing Case Competition, which was hosted by the Center for Excellence in Manufacturing at IUPUI’s Kelley School of Business.

Ilitch School students Sohaib Khan, Hafsa Qureshi, Tamela Wilson and Melinda Yang bested eight other teams from supply chain programs across the Midwest.

This year’s competition, which took place virtually on April 10, included a panel of six corporate judges acting as a board of directors while student teams presented as outside consultants. Each student team had 20 minutes to define and analyze the problems evident in the case and then present and justify a suitable plan of action.

Judges lauded the Ilitch School team for their creativity and professionalism as well as the overall polished nature of their presentation, with one judge even calling it “a Forbes 500-type presentation,” according to faculty advisor Lori Sisk.
