The Quantitative Finance Summer Program is an intensive 10-week program that provides Summer Associates the opportunity to work alongside full-time professionals on impactful, quantitative projects. Summer Associates will work within an assigned Desk Strats or Modeling team. These teams are primarily embedded within the Firm's Sales & Trading organization and provide critical quantitative solutions for the businesses they support. The multi-faceted program features senior quant teach-in sessions, Sales and Trading speaker series, product area training, networking events, and community service. With individual coaching and continuous feedback, the program enables Summer Associates to experience and understand what a long-term career with the Firm entails.
The summer will kick off with a week-long introductory training program, which provides context to the work that Summer Associates will be doing through market-knowledge training, educational workshops, and basic product and technical training. Following the training week, Summer Associates will continue to receive more individualized, on-the-job training as they join their assigned desks and begin their daily work and projects. Summer Associates will have a direct manager, as well as an program mentor, both of whom will act as invaluable resources to the Associates throughout their time at Morgan Stanley.
