What a week! The AIM program was on the go....

This was one of the busiest weeks in the 8 year history of the AIM program. As will be documented in upcoming blogs and newsletters, the Marquette AIM students and Dr. Krause were on the go. For instance:
  • Five AIM students advanced to the semi-final round of the CFA Investment Research Challenge in New York City.
  • Matt Rose (Alpha Investment Consulting) and Brady Endl (Marquette University) were guests in Dr. Krause's Alternative Investments class.
  • Six AIM alumni visited Marquette's campus on Friday and participated in Dr. Krause's AIM classes.
  • Five AIM students presented their equity recommendations at Geneva Capital Management on Friday.
  • 26 Marquette alumni had dinner with COBA Dean Linda Salchenberger and Dr. Krause on Friday night.
  • The 5th annual Ins and Outs of Wall Street was held on Saturday
    • 88 undergraduate students attended
    • 32 Marquette alumni were at the event
    • 9 Marquette administrators and faculty attended the day-long event.
  • An AIM impromptu event after the Ins and Outs of Wall Street at a campus watering hole attracted over 50 Marquette alumni and current AIM students.
  • Jason Rector (AIM '09) spoke to Dr. Krause's Alternative Investments and AIM classes
Dr. Krause, AIM director said, "This was an amazing week. It is truly incredible to see the growth of the Marquette finance alumni network the past several years. In the New York area alone we've seen a group of 8 Marquette alumni in 2005 grow to over 150 today. It is hard to thank each and every alumni, but everyone associated with the AIM program and the finance alumni network should be pleased with the successes we've achieved. Thank you all."
