Over 40 people were in attendance today in the AIM Room in the Marquette College of Business Administration to view the three AIM student equity presentations. The AIM students in the Class of 2012 that presented were: Rupali Varma, Caitlin McMahon, and Patrick Keeley. The stocks they presented are displayed in the table below (click on the image below to enlarge the image).

Besides the 23 students in the AIM Class of 2012, the audience included 12 students in the Class of 2011, Daniel Knight, Ross Michler, Brady Endl, and the following faculty and administrators:
  • Dr. Linda M. Salchenberger the James H. Keyes Dean of the College of Business Administration
  • Dr. Mateo Arena, Assistant Professor of Finance
  • Dr. Don Giacomino, Professor of Accounting
  • Dr. Steven Lysonski, Professor of Marketing and Miles Research Scholar
  • Dr. Jamshid C. Hosseini, Director of International Business Studies

The presentations were well received. The students presented for about 5 minutes and then answered audience questions for 10 minutes. Dean Linda Salchenberger was impressed with the quality of the presentations. She said, "I enjoyed the student pitches. They were well prepared and did an excellent job answering questions on the fly. I continue to be impressed by the students in the AIM program; they are well prepared to enter the world of finance."

Dr. David Krause, AIM program director, stated, "These were some interesting stocks that the students presented today. An Internet company, a baby clothier, and a specialty fuel wholesaler. I believe that this assortment of companies gave our guests a good idea about the diversity of sectors and companies that the students follow in the AIM program. I was very pleased that my colleagues were able to attend the pitches today - I know it might have been a bit more pressure for the AIM student presenters, but they did a nice job."
