Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, “The students did an outstanding job overall - during the past two days the 16 presentations have been well done. The student presentations in Chicago were sharp and the attendees asked excellent questions. This was a very strong set of AIM presentations and I know the attendees were impressed. It was good to see the large turnout in Chicago and we enjoyed the dialogue - it was one of the best road shows to date.”
The guests included: Rick Broeren (BNP Paribas), Chris Caparelli (Marquette Associates), Chris Cebula (Elementum Advisors), Mike D'Agostino (JP Morgan), Joe Farwell (Farwell Law), Mike Kennedy (PPM America), Paul Kreie (Midwest Mezzanine Funds), David Kucera (BMO Capital Markets), Ted Neely (Goldman Sachs), Greg Rawls (Midwest Mezzanine Funds), Jason Rector (Mesirow Financial), Mike Rice (Barclay's Capital), Dan Delany (Oak Ridge Investments), Jeffrey Stanley, Scott Kennedy, and John Lagedrost.

Krause commented, “Brian Liedlich and Jennifer Sloan of the Marquette Chicago Advancement Office did an outstanding job organizing this event. We will continue to find ways to bring our students to Chicago for these type of events. The value of the 'AIM road shows' cannot be downplayed - this is a great way for our Chicago area alumni to remain engaged with our students. We will be back in the spring and look forward to the new class of AIM students making their first presentations.”
