SCM Day is the primary networking and recruiting event for our SCM students and industry partners. This in-person event is hosted on the Macomb campus, and held prior to most companies making their hiring decisions regarding internship and employment for the following spring and summer.

Students from freshman year through graduate school attend the day’s events.

  • Semi-annual advisory board meeting with program updates. Industry partners provide advice and input regarding classroom curriculum and trends.
  • Table Fair: company representatives have access to the talent pool of potential interns and employees. Businesses provide materials about their companies, careers available, etc.
