Spring Insight Programme

Morgan Stanley is a true global citizen, with offices around the world where talented, passionate people bring excellence and integrity to everything we do. Our vision and goals can only be achieved through hiring, training and rewarding the best people. We believe attitude is just as important as aptitude. We want to work with and develop students and graduates who show integrity and commitment to our core values, who share our commitment to providing first-class service to clients and who are open to innovation.

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.
