Analysts are placed into one of our main departments: Equity Capital Markets, Fixed Income Capital Markets, Leveraged Finance or Client Solutions. During the two-year program, you will work with our clients on complex, innovative financing and risk management solutions in the fast-paced environment of a trading floor with immediate access to market information. The atmosphere is market-driven and reflects that of a trading desk where you would potentially sit alongside your Managing Director. The GCM experience and flat structure will provide you with a high level of responsibility early in your career. Exceptional Analysts may be offered the Accelerated Career Path (ACP) which results in a promotion directly to Associate-level positions.
Your Analyst career begins in June with a thorough training program at our headquarters in New York City. The program consists of a variety of presentations and exercises led by experts ranging from professors and industry leaders to current Analysts and senior bankers. It includes course work in accounting, industry and product-specific training, an introduction to Morgan Stanley proprietary analytical tools, as well as an overall education about the Firm. Throughout the program, you will work in small groups with your classmates. Numerous social events are also hosted to give you an opportunity to meet other first-year Analysts across the Firm.
