apply for the program

Placement and duration

The Investment Management Summer Analyst Program is a 10-week program consisting of one week of training and nine weeks working within a specific IM group. The majority of opportunities are in our New York offices, but there may also be select positions in suburban Philadelphia. During the 10-week program, Summer Analysts experience the work, culture and atmosphere of Morgan Stanley by performing a role similar to a Full-Time Analyst. 

The Global Risk & Analysis Division within IM is responsible for identifying, assessing, managing and monitoring risk across IM and providing reporting and analysis for clients, regulators, IM and Firm Management. Global Risk & Analysis is divided into three primary functions:

  • Investment risk groups (Equity, Fixed Income, Alternatives and Cross-Asset) have responsibility for management of investment risk – market, credit and liquidity – across their respective asset classes.
  • Operational risk identifies, assesses and monitors operational risk across IM and works both with the investment teams and control functions to mitigate that risk.
  • Quantitative risk develops and validates models used for portfolio construction, valuation, and risk measurement across IM.

Training program

Morgan Stanley Investment Management’s training program consists of a curriculum designed to equip Summer Analysts with the fundamental skills they need in order to be successful. The program is one week long and includes a Firmwide orientation, business overviews, professional development, technical training and networking events. A speaker series is also a part of the overall training and is run throughout the duration of the program.


The Global Risk & Analysis Group is looking for Summer Analysts to join the investment, operational and quantitative risk groups in several areas, including:

  • Maintaining a flexible risk management infrastructure that allows consistent risk monitoring across IM’s investment platform
  • Monitoring existing investment portfolios and evaluating potential new products to assess various types of risks
  • Working with investment and risk professionals to respond to regulatory requests for information and to manage IM’s business in conformance with evolving regulatory requirements
