Association of Industrial Management Students (AIMS)

AIMS is a group of students who are enrolled in the Industrial Management major, as well as Freshman or Sophomores transferring into the program. This group offers members a chance to connect with other students who are in similar classes and situations, as well as alumni who have been there. Here at Krannert, those of us majoring in Industrial Management are being trained to not only dream, but also to design and deliver the next great idea. Not only are we receiving the management training necessary to get the ideas where they need to be, but we are also getting a technical background to understand and help that idea become a product. This unique combination is a large reason why the Industrial Management program can boast a 100% job placement record. As IM majors, we Dream. Design. Deliver.

Professional Development Events

We hope to organize at least one professional development event every month where our members can interact with company representatives, BSIM alumni, or industry experts. We plan to organize events such as discussion panels, speaker series, company dinners, plant tours, or the new Krannert Dean’s office sponsored manufacturing and operations learning community.

Financial Support: $200 per event + a negotiable cost of event (cost will vary depending on type of event)

Support Deadline: October 1, 2017 for Fall 2017; January 31, 2018 for Spring 2018

Recognition and Branding: Company logo will be present on all marketing material (fliers placed around Krannert School of Management, digital fliers on TV’s in Krannert and Rawls buildings, etc.). Company logo would be present on presentation material, and a verbal recognition of your support would also be given.

Corporate Sponsorship

Additionally, we are always open to forming strategic corporate partnerships. Industrial Management majors graduate with a wide array of business, technical, and soft-skills that allow them to excel at a variety of entry level positions and eventually take on leadership roles in their organizations. This is evidence by 40% of the 10 person Purdue Board of Trustees being Industrial Management alumni. By partnering with AIMS, a company can gain access to students in a program that is proven to produce high achieving alumni.

Date: ongoing

Financial Support: $1,500

Recognition and Branding: Company logo on all club sponsored apparel, website, and our organization promotional signage. Recognition of your support will be expressed on social media each semester and verbally at non-corporate sponsored professional development events. We will also promote internship/full-time positions or any other of your company events being held on campus that we are aware of or as requested.
