Ross Michler, AIM Class of 2010, will be graduating on Sunday, December 19 from Marquette University. He is going to work for Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York as an Investment-Grade Debt Capital Market Analyst. Ross will be starting his new position in July, 2011.

Ross will be joining fellow AIM alumnus, Tom Kruse (AIM '07), who works for BAML in the high yield debt capital markets group. He becomes the fifth AIM graduate to accept employment with Bank of America Merrill Lynch in New York - the most recent being Sarah Clasing (AIM '10) and Steven Briggs (AIM '09).

He graduates from Marquette with majors in finance and accounting. Ross has been active in numerous organizations including: Financial Management Association, Beta Alpha Psi, and the Investment Club.

 Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, "It has been a pleasure working with Ross the past three years. He was an outstanding scholar and citizen - he embodies the type of student Marquette is proud to graduate. He believes in the mission of helping others and has been very active in supporting the students in the junior and senior classes. Ross is working hard to advance more students into the world of high finance and he understands the importance of supporting the dreams and goals of others."

Ross was the telecommunications and media analyst for the AIM Equity Fund. Ross will point out that all of his additions to the AIM Fund over the past two years have generated positive returns. His best selection was Syniverse Technologies (NYSE: SVR), which was recently acquired by The Caryle Group providing the AIM Fund with a 90%+ return.

During the past two summers Ross had internships in corporate finance with Johnson Diversey (Racine, WI) and in corporate and investment banking with BNP-Paribas (Chicago, IL).
"Ross will be missed in the AIM Room as he was always a positve person. I rarely saw Ross get down on himself; however, maybe all those years of missing 6 foot putts toughened him up mentally," Dr. Krause joked. "Seriously though, I can't say enough good things about him. Ross rarely missed a class and was always an active participant in our classroom discussions. He, like the other December graduates, will be missed on campus. We all wish him the very best!"
