Since the inception of AIM in the fall of 1996, there have been over 1,000 students who have successfully completed the course. These former analysts now comprise the global AIM alumni network, and many have become leaders in their professions, especially in the financial world. Former AIM analysts have gone on to become senior professionals at some of the most respected investment firms globally including The Blackstone Group, The Boston Consulting Group, Goldman Sachs, Maverick Capital, McKinsey & Company, Morgan Stanley and Viking Global. Some, have even launched their own firms, most notably in the hedge fund world. Today, many AIM alumni remain actively involved with the current AIM analysts both on trips at AIM alumni dinners and in the classroom as guest speakers during visits to campus.
