Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, “The students did an excellent job overall. Their presentations were sharp and the attendees asked good questions. This was one of the strongest set of AIM presentations we’ve seen. I enjoyed the dialogue between the presenters and the guests.”
The guests included: Tom Eck (Cortina Asset Management), Andy Verchota (Cortina Asset Management), Nate Novak (Baird), Matt Rose (Alpha Investment Consulting Group), Mike Klenn (Timpani Asset Management), and Dr. Don Giacomino (Marquette University).
Krause commented, “We had 12 of the new AIM students from the Class of 2012 in attendance – and we also had 3 freshman interested in finance in the crowd. It is encouraging to see underclassmen viewing the presentations. It was an excellent evening.”
