First AIM Presentations of the Spring 2016 Semester
On Friday, January 29, 2016, four AIM students in the Class of 2016 pitched stocks. In addition to over 50 students attending the pitches in the AIM Room, their presentations were viewed on-line via a webcast by more than a dozen alumni across the country.

These presentations also included something new: micro-blogging (via Twitter). During the AIM student equity pitches on Friday more than 20 questions and comments were posted at #AIMpitch.
The presenting students have the opportunity to respond to the questions over the weekend before the students vote on whether or not to add the stocks.
The AIM student equity pitches have always been one of the main highlights of the program. The opportunity for students to actively manage domestic and international equity and fixed-income portfolios has been an important part of Marquette AIM program’s experiential learning since its inception in 2005.
The AIM students who presented on Friday included:
- Avery Flyte (Buffalo Wild Wings, BWLD, Consumer Discretionary)
- Dan Kralovec (Medidata Solutions, MDSO, Healthcare)
- Travis Mantel (Prudential Plc, PUK, International Financial Services)
- John Grant (WNS Holdings, WNS, International Industrials)
