Spring Insight Programme

Job description

Our one-week Spring Insight Programme is designed for those of you who have just embarked on your university course and wish to explore the different areas at Morgan Stanley prior to qualifying for a summer internship or industrial placement the following year. The programme is a great opportunity for you to gain a thorough insight into the various divisions into which we recruit, our working environment, people and culture as well as explore the type of work you could be doing if you joined as an analyst.

Placement and duration
Morgan Stanley offers two Spring Insight Programmes for institutional securities, London and Frankfurt.

The Institutional Securities Spring Insight runs for one week. In the first three days you will receive an overview of the various divisions that make up our Institutional Securities Group (ISG), including equity research, Global Capital Markets (GCM), investment banking and sales and trading. You will then have the opportunity to choose the division in which you wish to spend the remainder of the week.

Both programmes will run in April 2020 (exact dates to be confirmed).

Training programme
The Programme consists of a mix of lecture-based sessions, educational activities, workshops and case studies, as well as the opportunity to work shadow in the division of your choice. Throughout the week, you will build on the skills necessary for a successful career in Institutional Securities. You will meet and network with Morgan Stanley employees from across all corporate levels and at the end of the programme you have the opportunity to be fast-tracked to a summer/off cycle internship the following year.

  • You have a minimum 320 UCAS points in the United Kingdom and/or an equivalent standard for students from outside the U.K
  • You must be an undergraduate in your second year of a three-year degree course or your third year of a four year course and on target to graduate in 2020
