Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne Supply Chain Management student José Gomez Marquez won the top prize for the second year in a row during the 2020 Connexus Indiana Case Competition. He was part of a team of four students from Ivy Tech campuses across the state. The event featured over 150 students from 27 schools throughout the nation to solve a business case in only 24 hours. José’s team took home $5,000 as the winners in the associate degree track of the competition.
“It was an amazing feeling to win the Connexus competition two years in a row, and I give a lot of the credit to the instructors at Ivy Tech who have helped me to refine my skills in the field of logistics and supply chain,” said José Gomez Marquez. “I also need to acknowledge the fantastic team that we had this time: all Ivy Tech students who also work full-time and could bring a tremendous amount of real-world experience that let us clinch the victory!”
This was the fifth annual Connexus Indiana Case Competition. The competition was held virtually and students were presented with a business case that reflected current challenges businesses face due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
