Sean RainfordSean Rainford, Stillman MBA student, has won first place in the 2013 Rhoda Isaacs Scholarship in Supply Chain Management competition. The Rhoda Issacs scholarship is sponsored by the New York chapter of the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP). The first place winner is typically selected from a competitive array of both graduate level and undergraduate supply chain students from colleges and universities in the greater New York City area.

Rainford's winning essay addressed key trends shaping supply chain including the rise of knowledge workers and the evolution of "big data" to "fast data."

"Winning this award was due largely in part to the education I have received from Dr. Penina Orenstein and others in the Stillman MBA program. This program will serve me very well in my career pursuits and afford me the opportunity to be an ambassador and testament to the exceptional quality of education offered at the Stillman School."

Rainford wins a fully sponsored trip to the annual Global CSCMP conference in Denver, Colorado, taking place this month. At the conference, he will have the opportunity to learn from and network with 2,000+ supply chain industry professionals.

Rainford joins a growing list of Stillman MBA students winning awards in supply chain management, including Wambui Gathu who recently won the Institute of Supply Chain Management - Capital One Scholarship.
