SBE teams at LUMS won the Case Study Competition where more than 16 teams from 12 plus universities participated actively. The LUMS Supply Chain Summit is an annual business competition that brings together the best talent from across the country. The Case Study Competition was completely swept by SBE teams, winning both the TOP awards with no third prize given to any university.
First Prize Winning team: Hira, Ms Rabiyya, Usman and the team members (A group from BBA)
Second Prize Winning team: Idrees, Abdullah, Noman and the team members (A group from MBA)
It was not at all easy to participate in such an event where the experts of high caliber like Faheem Khan, Director Supply Chain (Unilever), Sohail Butt, Group Manager Demand and Supply Planning (Nestle), Abid Butt, CEO (e2e) and Dr Zahoor (LUMS) were to appear. (Pictures attached)
This time initiative was taken by Center for Supply Chain Research (CSCR) and fully backed and supported by Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CENTIN). Due to the UMT's marvelous history at LUMS, they specially invited Ijaz Yusuf, Director CSCR, and Asher Ramish, Director CENTIN, to deliver lectures on Supply Chain Dynamics and Balancing Supply with Demand accordingly. Both the faculty members shared their knowledge with passion and hence were greatly applauded by the participants at LUMS. It is also worth mentioning that for the very first time, four teams from UMT were fully sponsored by LUMS in the honor of UMT's back to back achievements and participation at LUMS.
This clearly indicates that the case study teaching skills and the knowledge delivered at SBE by the faculty is undoubtedly quality oriented but that is of course not at all possible without the kind guidance and continuous support of our Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad. The personal efforts and untiring support of Dean SBE Dr Rukhsana Kalim also deserve commendation.
A note of thanks is in order for Zubair Akbar, MBA LSE, Coordinator CSCR, for giving his best to coordinate with LUMS team and making all necessary arrangements. The team of OFM, especially Lt. Col. (R) Saif Ullah Khan, extended full support for transport facility, the team of Social Media and Mehr Yaqoob provided extended full media coverage.
