No Joke - On April 1, 2016, Students in the AIM Class of 2017 Pitched Their First Set of Stocks!
Over 50 students in the AIM Room attended the first set of equity pitches delivered by the Class of 2017 in the AIM Room on Friday. The seven AIM student presentations also were viewed on-line via a webcast by more than 15 alumni and family members across North America.

These presentations also 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 and the new class did a solid job.
