Daniel Wong, academic director of the supply chain management program received the annual APICS Award of Excellence on April 18, 2019 on behalf of the program and The School of Business. “This award was given to us to recognize our contributions to the professional supply chain community, APICS Portland Chapter,” Wong said.
The School of Business co-hosts a biennial dinner event with APICS along with a career fair for students from undergraduate and graduate supply chain management programs and employers hiring for supply chain management positions.
Our faculty and staff have presented at numerous APICS events:
- The School of Business’ Dean Cliff Allen presented on big data.
- Carlos Mena Eng. D., assistant professor in supply chain management, presented on supply chain leadership.
- Daniel Wong presented on trade wars and how they impact the global supply chain.
- Steven Carnovale, former assistant professor in supply chain management, presented on reverse logistics.
Needless to say, the supply chain management program at PSU is highly involved in the APICS Portland Chapter. It’s common for our students to volunteer at APICS events, and a large portion of working professionals involved in APICS are graduates from our supply chain program at The School of Business. We are honored to have received this award and are excited to continue our involvement in the APICS community.
