Sophomore Summer Analysts hired in New York are given general offers, then placed into two-5 week rotations in the industry coverage groups or into Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A). Opportunities are also available in our regional offices in Houston, Los Angeles, Menlo Park and San Francisco. During the 10-week program, Summer Analysts experience the culture and atmosphere of Morgan Stanley by taking on responsibilities of a Full Time Analyst, working on a variety of corporate transactions and making meaningful contributions to the delivery of projects.
After five days of intensive training in New York, Summer Analysts spend the program within a specific group, building a strong foundation in the basic skills of financial analysis, accounting and valuation, and working on a wide range of transactions. Summer Analysts receive continuing on-the-job training throughout the program and benefit from working alongside experienced professionals on meaningful projects. For example, they might accompany clients on a road show for a headline-making equity offering, participate in the execution of an M&A transaction, or analyze financial information in preparation for making a strategic recommendation to a top client. In addition, Summer Analysts have many opportunities to network with peers, mentors and senior managers through team-building sessions and other organized events.
