The IIT APICS Student Chapter in collaboration with APICS strives to bridge the gap between industry and academia through on-campus seminars, lectures, and workshops, and off-site national student competitions and facility tours.
A highlight of IIT’s partnership with APICS 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. The 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? INTM students also participate in the regional APICS Great Lakes Case Competition with more than 20 universities from the Midwest.
