Students Finish High In Bowersox Supply Chain Challenge

JONESBORO – Four Arkansas State University students from the College of Business recorded the school’s highest finish ever in the ninth annual Bowersox Supply Chain Challenge hosted by Michigan State University in East Lansing last week.
A-State came in fourth of 15 teams representing MSU, Brigham Young, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Central Michigan, Duquesne, Grand Valley State, Miami, Northeastern, Texas Christian, North Florida, Wayne State, West Virginia and Western Michigan. Wisconsin was the winner, followed by TCU and Northeastern.
“It was such an awesome trip,” said Dr. Shane Hunt, professor of marketing and the R.M. “Bob” Wood Endowed Professor in Sales Leadership. “We were the smallest university in the competition, but our students were amazing. We finished ahead of several of the top 30 business schools in the world including Michigan State, Ohio State, and BYU and the other faculty at those schools could not say enough positive things about our team.”
Participating students from Arkansas State’s global supply chain management program include Travis McCloskey of Bella Vista, Richard Crawford of Melbourne, Kristen Vaughn of Jonesboro and Josh Goldsmith of Benoni, South Africa. Hunt and Dr. Dong “Michelle” Li, assistant professor of supply chain/operations management, accompanied the team.   MORE
