Cal Poly Pomona's Experience:

In April 2017, one team representing Cal Poly Pomona won the Regional Finals located at USC in Los Angeles and continued onto the final challenge in Zwolle, Netherlands! There, they had the opportunity to network with top Supply Chain Management talents including fellow students and Supply Chain professionals from all over the world! Cal Poly's team was placed 4th out of 20 teams from across the world. This competition is an excellent opportunity to give you global recognition, potential job opportunities, and an immersive experience!
