Dayton Hoell admitted to Marquette University's highly competitive Applied Investment Management Program
2012 Nov 9
Marquette University proudly welcomes Dayton Hoell, a junior accounting and finance major in the College of Business Administration, into the 2014 Applied Investment Management Program (AIM). Hoell, a Menomonee Falls, Wis. native, is one of 23 new students admitted this year.
Marquette's College of Business Administration is home to one of the nation's top undergraduate programs in applied investment management. The AIM program allows a select group of finance majors to get hands-on academic and security analysis experience, including summer internships and the opportunity to actively manage equity and fixed-income portfolios throughout their senior year.
The AIM programs features a fully equipped investment research room located in the College of Business Administration. Students conduct research in the room, which offers many of the same financial tools (i.e. Bloomberg, Thomson Financial and Morningstar) that investment professionals use on a daily basis. Each year since the program's inception, AIM students have achieved a 100 percent career placement rate and surpassed the global pass rate on the Chartered Financial Analysts Level I exam.
Unlike other offerings in the College of Business Administration, the AIM selection process is highly competitive, due to the limited capacity of the program. Applicants were required to submit a formal application packet to the director of AIM and were further evaluated by the program's admissions committee. The selection of students for the program was based on overall academic performance, performance in courses relevant to investment management, an application essay, and experiences and career objectives as demonstrated in the student's resume, letters of recommendation and interviews.
Marquette University is a Catholic, Jesuit university that draws its more than 11,500 students from all 50 states and more than 75 different countries. In addition to its nationally recognized academic programs, Marquette is known for its service learning programs and internships as students are challenged to use what they learn to make a difference in the world.
