Two teams of MS in Supply Chain Management students from the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business placed second and third at the recent annual APICS Mid Atlantic District Case Competition. The Case Competition was held on Feb. 24-25, 2017, in Pittsburgh, Pa. More than 22 teams participated in the preliminary rounds of the competition, and only five teams made it to the final round in Pittsburgh—four of those teams were from the University of Maryland.

The second-place team, pictured, included Hailong He, Shuxuan Zhao, Wei Zhang, and Weiguang Zeng. The third-place team included Caijun Zhong, Xuejing Sun, Jiahui Wu, and Qiuyan Chen. Hailong He currently serves as president of the Smith School APICS chapter, and, Shuxuan Zhao, Weiguang Zeng, and Jiahui Wu are also officers of that club. The Smith School APICS chapter advisor, Humberto Coronado, accompanied the students to the competition.
