In addition to over 40 students attending the pitches in the AIM Room, their presentations were viewed on-line via a webcast by more than 20 alumni and parents across North America.
These presentations again included the opportunity for real-time micro-blogging (via Twitter). During the AIM student equity pitches on Friday more than 20 questions and comments were posted at #AIMpitch at the @MarquetteAIM Twitter site.
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 they pitched.
The student equity pitches have always been one of the main highlights of the AIM program.
The opportunity for students to actively manage domestic and international equity portfolios has been an important part of Marquette AIM program’s experiential learning.
The AIM students who presented on Friday included:
- Ryan Johnston (Home Bancshares, HOMB, Financial Services)
- Brendan Fanning (Swatch Group, SWGAY, International Consumer Discretionary)
- Eric Christopherson (KornFerry, KFY, Industrials)
- Joel Kretz (Associated British Foods, ASBFY, International Consumer Staples)
