The 10-week FSE Summer Analyst program takes place at Morgan Stanley’s headquarters in New York. Summer Analysts will have the opportunity to work on both strategy projects and principal M&A transactions, while gaining direct exposure to senior management. On strategic consulting projects, Summer Analysts can expect to develop advanced problem-solving skills, strategic thinking frameworks, and a much deeper understanding of the global financial services industry. Through analysis and execution of principal M&A projects, Summer Analysts will learn the fundamentals of company valuation, deal sourcing, structuring and execution, due diligence, negotiations and business integration.
Alongside other peers, FSE Summer Analysts will attend the five-day Investment Banking Division (IBD) training program, which includes both academic and practical sessions focusing on financial accounting and modeling training from accomplished instructors, bankers and university professors. Following this, FSE Summer Analysts may also participate in additional training focused specifically on the financial services sector and industry-specific valuation and accounting methodology.
