CBE Students and Faculty came together to celebrate their peers, while also enjoying refreshments provided by the College of Business and Economics.
A huge congratulations to all CBE students who participated in these competitions! Keep up the amazing work!
Boeing Northwest Case Competition
The 2022 Boeing Northwest Case Competition challenged students to apply their business knowledge in an integrated team setting to solve industrial problems that they may encounter in the real world.
The case problem for this year was to have students create a business plan to implement an overall reclamation and salvage strategy of commercial aircrafts with a service life of 20-30 years. Participating students would then have to describe the resources required in their strategy plan, and were encouraged to outline risks, opportunities, and strategic decisions Boeing should consider with their product and supply chain.
CBE students created a team called "Smooth Operators", and won first place in the first annual Boeing Northwest Case Competition on Friday, Nov. 8, at the Museum of Flight in Seattle! Congratulations to Kezia Park, Jacob DeCook, Jorge Hernandez, Ben Lewis, and Karhum Samaha!
SAP/ERPsim Sustainability Challenge
WWU CBE students also participated in the SAP/ERPsim Sustainability Challenge on October 27th, 2022. In the challenge, participating teams played 4 rounds of the ERPsim Logistics Sustainability Game. Each round was made of 10 virtual days of 60 seconds each. Teams were ranked based on their company valuation and sustainability.
