The BRM Full-time Analyst Program is a two-year program consisting of a rotational program for the first year, followed by final placement during the second year. The program begins with one month of BRM-specific training and development, followed by three four-month rotations across BRM, after which analysts will be placed in a permanent function for their second year. Rotational, final placements will be across any of the following BRM business areas: Securities Lending, Fixed Income Client Financing, Secured Funding, Clearing and Collateral Strategy & Optimization (CCSO), Sales & Marketing, and Strategy. With exposure to different products and interaction with various Morgan Stanley divisions, the rotational program provides analysts with a knowledge platform and business connections that uniquely position analysts for a successful and fast-tracked career.
All new Analysts participate in an intensive orientation program, which covers the Firm's businesses and the transition from an academic setting to a corporate environment, in addition to providing opportunities for establishing a network across businesses throughout the Firm. BRM Analysts then attend divisional training, alongside other Sales & Trading Analysts, where they learn core skills required to be successful on the job. The curriculum includes daily market updates, accounting courses, credit risk analysis, business overview speaker sessions, fundamental and advanced product and technical training, and registration preparation. In addition, Analysts have several opportunities to network with peers, mentors and managers through team building sessions and other organized events.
