Morgan Stanley has three distinct types of opportunities for Summer Associates. Many join the generalist pool, based in our New York office, and work on a range of projects across corporate finance industry groups and our Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) department. If you have experience or interest in a particular sector, we attempt to accommodate your preference when making project assignments. Additionally, our New York-based Real Estate Banking, Latin America and Financial Institutions Groups hire directly. Finally, opportunities are available in our regional offices located in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Menlo Park, Mexico City, San Francisco, and Toronto.
Investment Banking Summer Associates participate in an orientation program covering the Firm’s businesses, the transition from an academic setting to a corporate environment, and opportunities for establishing a network throughout the Firm. Our week-long training program in New York also covers corporate valuation methodologies, financial statement analysis and modeling from accomplished instructors, bankers and university professors.
