Supply Chain Management Senior Wins Area CompetitionApril 9, 2009
OGDEN, Utah – Cody Muirbrook, a supply chain management student at Weber State University, recently took first place in a competition for area college students sponsored by the Utah-Idaho Region Roundtable of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP).
Muirbrook, a senior from North Ogden, Utah, and eight other top students from Brigham Young University, WSU and Idaho State University made presentations explaining why supply chain management is important to business.
"Cody is not only a good student; he knows the relevance of supply chain management in today's world and shows great passion for the discipline," said Stephen Russell, supply chain management professor at WSU. "I'm sure that came through in his presentation and contributed to his winning the competition."
By placing first, Muirbrook earned the right to attend the CSCMP annual conference, the premier event for supply chain management professionals, in Chicago in September. In addition to networking opportunities for career employment, he will have the opportunity to attend educational sessions at the conference with the 3,000 professionals and educators.
Brian Williams, another supply chain management student who represented WSU at the competition, received a cash stipend for his presentation.
The supply chain management program at WSU requires course work in operations, management, quality, transportation, industrial purchasing, inventory management, strategic management, computer models, decision analysis and other areas, as well as a comprehensive senior-level course in logistics and supply chain management.
