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 Spring Insight Programme is designed for students who have just started university and would like 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 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. Morgan Stanley offers three Spring Insight Programs: Institutional Securities, Technology and Operations.

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 Investment Banking, Global Capital Markets (GCM), Sales & Trading, Bank Resource Management (BRM) and Equity Research. You then can 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 and explore how Analyst roles differ between them.

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

Requirements: You must be an undergraduate in your first year of a three-year degree course or your second year of a four-year course and on target to graduate in 2025.
