Back From NYC Trip: AIM Students Get Back to Work

The New York City trip during the fall break was successful. Dr. Krause, AIM program director, and about 30 Marquette University finance students visited 9 financial firms during the annual trip to NYC. Dr. Krause said, "I was an exhausting 5 days. I am hopeful that the students learned as much as I did. We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet with many high level executives of the world's leading financial institutions. For me personally, this was the best trip to New York yet and I hope the students appreciate the efforts of our NYC alumni to make these opportunities available to them. It also took a lot of planning on the part of my colleagues, Jon Paparsenos and COBA Dean Salchenberger. And I am thankful for their support during the visit."

Dr. Krause and the AIM students are back to work following the 'break.' He said, "The Chicago Circles event on October 27th is approaching rapidly. I will be hosting a roundtable focus group with Chris McGuire of Phalanx Capital Management. The title of the session is: “Why Hedge Funds Belong in Individual Investor Portfolios in the 21st Century. It should be a good session.”

The AIM students will not be presenting before the October 27th Circles event as previously planned, but will still be visiting Chicago for the AIM Chicago Road Show scheduled for Friday, November 12th at the CCS Learning Center, 155 North Wacker Drive, Suite #1790. An invitation will send out shortly to the Chicago-area Marquette alumni. Krause added, "Save the November 12th date. We will be presenting 8 stocks and are look forward to seeing you then."
