Similar to Marquette University, Pius seeks to prepare their students for higher education and lead them toward lives guided by faith, driven by compassion, formed by scholarship, and prepared to engage the world.

The AIM students met Mr. Radke’s Entrepreneurship class – which consists of students likely to study Business Administration in college. The students were mainly seniors who have completed either Economics or A.P. Macroeconomics. The AIM students talked about the career opportunities within the financial services industry. They also talked about the subject matter that the Pius students will need to master in order to excel at their major.

They also discussed their internships and how they chose the areas of finance they will be employed. A question and answer session followed.  Additionally, the students discussed the AIM program at Marquette and answered questions.

Dr. David Krause said, “We’d like to thank Roger Radke for hosting our students at Pius XI. I’d also like to give a shout out to the Marquette students who took time out of their schedules to give back to our community and in representing the AIM program and Marquette. And a special thanks to Jessica Hoerres for travelling with the students and helping to organize the event.”
