Operations Research Expo 2017 at MIT
Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Here is a chance to see the next wave of innovations in logistics and operations.   At RESEARCH EXPO 2017, over 120 supply chain master’s students from over 30 countries will showcase their company-sponsored thesis projects.  Stroll among the e-posters, chat with the next generation of supply chain leaders, and vote for the “Best Project.” 1

  • This year’s projects (100+) are sponsored by global companies such as BASF, CHEP, C.H. Robinson, Coyote Logistics, CVS Health, Damco, FEDEX, Genentech, GlaxoSmithKline, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Niagra Water, OnProcess, Procter & Gamble, Schlumberger, Walmart and many more.
  • Enjoy an evening of a large food buffet, desserts, drinks, and champagne, while you network with 200 fellow executives in operations, supply chain, logistics, and transportation from both sponsoring companies and from the New England region. This will be a “target rich environment” for new ideas, new contacts, and new talent.
  • Your local APICS Chapters are running a Case Competition among these same students the week before this event. Come see photos of the event, and meet the students who took home the prize..

1 Students are from MIT’s Global Supply Chain And Logistics Excellence (SCALE) Network centers in Spain, Malaysia, Latin America, and Cambridge, MA.  They average 30 years old with five years of work experience.
