The Fresh Connection APICS Global Student Challenge

The Global Student Challenge, powered by The Fresh Connection is so much more than just an international student competition! Gain valuable knowledge and develop skills needed to cross over to the corporate world. Experience the life of a Corporate Executive and run your own virtual company, this is as close as you can get to reality! Ultimately, get noticed by top corporates in search for top talent and get recruited for your dream job or internship!

Every year the Challenge pits teams from business schools and universities from across the globe against each other in a search for world’s Top Talent in Supply Chain Management. The Challenge is to run your own virtual company, The Fresh Connection, with a team of 4 students. The Fresh Connection is a manufacturer of fruit juices and is delivering to retail channels. As the company is suffering severe losses, a new management team (you and your team!) has been appointed to make the company profitable again by making strategic and tactical decisions.
