What is UMSCO?
The University of Manitoba Supply Chain Organization (UMSCO) is also the APICS Winnipeg Student Chapter. Our main purpose is to provide information, resources, and networking opportunities to those majoring in Logistics & Supply Chain Management and to individuals interested in the field. Our goal is to help bridge the connection between companies and students looking for career options within the supply chain field.
UMSCO is well-known for our supportive community, which is made up of undergraduate and graduate students. We have been receiving tremendous support from the supply chain department and many top companies in Winnipeg.

For the past 3 years UMSCO has proudly held its Annual Case Competition at the I.H. Asper School of Business during the fall term. Due to COVID 19, we regrettably inform you that our Annual Case Competition will be suspended until further notice. While it is still our aim to give students the opportunity to develop, the health and safety of our community is our utmost priority. We are looking into new ways to bring development opportunities to students, so stay tuned!
