Student teams from Indiana University, Purdue University and Purdue Polytechnic Anderson win Conexus Indiana National Collegiate Case Competition

Students from Indiana University, Purdue University and Purdue Polytechnic Institute (Anderson) were named winners in the sixth annual Conexus Indiana National Collegiate Case Competition. The case competition fielded 24 teams and challenged the students to solve one of two advanced manufacturing and logistics business cases with first- second- and third-place winners named in three different tracks.

The three first-place teams each won $5,000, with second- and third-place teams each taking home $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.

The Conexus Indiana Case Competition is held annually and encourages college students to use what they’ve learned in the classroom in a simulated real-world environment. In addition, students interact with Indiana advanced manufacturing and logistics professionals during a career fair and throughout the event with industry leaders serving as judges. This year, 24 companies and organizations participated in the career fair and 18 professionals, representing all facets of the advanced manufacturing and supply chain industries, served as judges.
