Preview to 5 Morgan Stanley Interviews Below

1. Summer Associate Interview

Process Description

Lots of fit questions with a few technical questions. Being excited about Houston, TX and being able to commit on the spot is highly prized

Example of Interview Question at Morgan Stanley:

How has fracking changed energy landscape in US? Turned everything on its head. reversing the piping of US


2. Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

Applied online, completed numerical and inductive tests. I was called for phone interviews 6 weeks later and did 2 phone interviews in one week. Following that I was called to an assessment centre which involved 3 one-on-one interviews, a group discussion, a markets based presentation and a further numerical test. I received a call the following day informing me of an offer.

Morgan Stanley Interviews:

Questions were broad and open in general, a few brainteasers such as how many golf balls fit in this room and 99 x 99.


3. Intern Interview

Process Description

On campus interview. Then a waiting period of a month. Then a final round super-day at their office.

Morgan Stanley Interviews:

One guy started to test me on my knowledge of options. He asked me what Delta was, I said I had not yet gotten up to options in class. That was the dealbreaker


4. MB/REI Capital Markets Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

I applied for the position in mid December. I heard back being offered a phone interview in the first week of January. The phone interview was strictly fit based. I had researched recent news about the division and was able to impress the interview. I think she was impressed that I actually knew what the group did. From there I was invited to a Super Day in NYC. Due to inclement weather, my Super day had to be postponed (although the other 7 candidates made it in). When I made it to the Super Day it was just a series of 30 minute meetings with 5 people from the Group. The next day I heard back that I was not offered the position. Tips: Research recent deals of the company. Be very open minded and try to make it a conversation rather than an interview (where I faltered during the Super Day)

Morgan Stanley Interview Question Example:

The only unexpected interview was about the Starbucks downstairs. How would I calculate the revenue that the Starbucks earns in a week?


5. Coverage Interview

Process Description

Submitted resume directly to school alum during on campus presentation. Two rounds of phone interviews followed by superday. 4 hours of interview with various VPs and associates followed by lunch.

Morgan Stanley Sample Interview Question:

Give all the scenarios where deferred tax liabilities and deferred tax assets can be created.
