Morgan Students Place Second in Business Competition

Congratulations to the Morgan State University student team of Shante Swan and Olamide Okelowo, which was runner-up in the 2nd Annual Weinman Cup Regional Supply Chain Competition this past February. Swan, a junior majoring in information science and systems, and Okelowo, a sophomore accounting major, competed against student teams from other universities in the region on a multidisciplinary case that covered areas of study including finance, marketing, management strategy and logistics. Other participating universities included Towson, Shippensburg and Kutztown, which earned the top place in the competition.

The Weinman Cup competition was created with the help of the Toby and Melvin Weinman Foundation, Inc., to provide students the opportunity to exercise their business savvy while networking with local business leaders. A panel of judges determines the winning team. Towson University hosted this year’s event.
