Traditionally, the SCMRC concludes every semester with the SCM Student Showcase: a
half day event featuring final presentations from the students within the Project
Management Courses within the Walton Supply Chain Program.
This course is a hallmark of the practice based learning that is embedded into the
Walton SCM curriculum as well as the SCMRC L.E.A.D. mission of engaging leading industry organizations in the classroom. Within this course,
students tackle real world supply chain challenges, ideating, researching, and ultimately
proposing solutions to the sponsoring company.
The event - formerly known as Demo Day - featured poster project presentations as well as three student panel discussion showcasing the value of integrated industry within our program.
