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 three Spring Insight Programmes: Institutional Securities, Technology & Operations.

The Institutional Securities Spring Insight runs for one week. In the first two days you will receive an overview of the various divisions that make up our Institutional Securities Group (ISG), including Investment Banking, Global Capital Markets (GCM), Sales & Trading, Bank Resource Management and Equity Research. You will then have the opportunity to choose the division in which you wish to spend the remainder of the week.

The Technology Spring Insight Programme runs for four days in London and two days in Glasgow and will provide you with an overview of how Technology works within Morgan Stanley and the important role it plays at the firm. You will gain an insight into the different departments within the division including Institutional Securities Technology (IST), Enterprise Technology & Services (ETS) and Corporate & Funding Technology (CFT).

The Operations Spring Insight Programme runs for two days in Glasgow and will provide you with an overview of the various departments within Operations in Glasgow and the important role they play at the firm. These departments include Institutional Securities Group Product Operations (ISGPO), Operations Risk and Regulatory Control (ORRC) and Shared Services & Banking Operations (SSBO).

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 or Technology. You will meet and network with Morgan Stanley employees from across all corporate levels and at the end of the programme could even have the opportunity to be fast-tracked to a Summer Analyst/Industrial Placement the following year.
